Challenge at Papercraft Star

I came across a challenge at Papercraft Star, and after this weekend having so much fun with the challenges from Creations With Christina, I decided to try this one as well.

It's a sketch (you can see it here... This is the card I came up with:

Finished card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (A2)

Cardstock: White, Pink and Patterned Paper (I used some scraps)
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder D'Vine Swirls
I printed "Think Pink" off the computer
3D-Dots (I popped the center image and also the sentiment)

I usually don't use pink as a main color (although two of my challenge cards this weekend had it, however, I went into my scrap drawer and found six (6) different papers that coordinated and they happened to be pink. Also, since it is Breast Awareness Month, I thought this would make a nice card.

Some days I find it easier to use a challenge to make a gives me a direction. Do you feel like that also? Leave me a comment (I would love to hear from you) and tell me what gives you inspiration.

Challenge yourself...find something to inspire you and just imagine what you could do...


  1. First off, what a lovely tribute to pink and all it means to us as women ! I knew it the minute I laid eyes on it, you really sold your message ! Challenges inspire me ALL the time - and magazine photos and buying something new and wonderful. Thank you for playing with us at Papercraft Star this week !!

  2. What a great card and a sweet tribute to breast cancer awareness! Lots of things inspire me... challenges, my family, other projects... There is so much in the world to gain inspiration from, sometimes you just have to stop looking so hard. I am so glad you joined us this week at Papercraft Star!

  4. Wonderful job with the sketch and a nice way to remind us of a very worthwhile cause. A lot of my inspiration comes from my fellow crafters. I'm always surfing the web looking at everybodys stuff. :) Thanks so much for joining us this week at Papercraft Star!
