Big, bright, and pink!

Today I finished a Some Odd Girl card for my niece Joey.  She will be 7 years old this weekend, and her favorite color is..... yep, PINK! 

This is Flower Kaylee!

There is a lot going on, on the top part of this easel card, so I kept it simple on the bottom and used a glittery number 7!  I used Echo Park's Summer Days, it had the perfect shade of pink that I was looking for.  The white lacy looking border in the background was made with a Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page punch.  I used flowers, twine, buttons, ribbon, and some old bottle caps from my stash.  This is pretty big, I think I left it at 6" x 6" for the top page.  I hope she likes it, Maddie said it was "fantastic"!  (knew I wanted her opinion!) ;)

Today I also finished up a card for two different challenges.  The Greeting Farm has a "No Coloring" challenge this week, and Anyone For Anya has a "Music in April" theme.  Here's what I came up with!

This is Tank from The Greeting Farm.

Since I couldn't color, I decided to stamp him on something unusual, canvas.  I used paper from Bella Blvd and a Glitz paper pad.  The guitars in the background fit with the "music" theme.  Lots of sewing!!!  Twine, button, and a few metal brads.  I like him, it's different!

Off to start dinner, and finish my long list of projects!
