Show Us Your Style!

Hi all!  This is my first project for the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog.  If you followed along last week you got to see some incredible projects from 6 of the talented DT on team A.  This week team B has 6 more inspiring projects to get your creative juices flowing.  Head on over to the blog and join in.  Gloria Stengel has put together an AMAZING prize pack for one lucky winner.

 
 
I decided to make a Valentine's Day card as my inspiration.  I would describe my style as cute, girly, and trendy.  Also I have an unhealthy obsession with  anything pink.  Yes, the first step is admitting you have a problem hehe! As you can see there is pink in abundance with this card.  I dug into my stamp stash for this cute little girl.  She is from the Mimi and Miles stamp set by Penny Black.  I colored her with my Inktense pencils and water.  The hot pink grosgrain ribbon has been in my ribbon hoard forever and I finally decided to us it up.  The paper is from Doodlebug.  I absolutely LOVE Doodlebug papers and I have a hard time parting with them, but I broke down and used them this time.  The pink sequins are a find from my large embellishment container.  I hope you enjoy my cute little inspiration and come share with us what you are hoarding.


Stamps: Penny Black Mimi and Miles; SSS Only Have Eyes For You
Ink: CTMH Archival Black Ink; Inktense Pencils; Memento Luxe Rosebud
Dies: MFT Fishtail Flag STAX; MFT pierced circle STAX
Paper: Doodlebug Sweetheart; Bazzil Marshmallow; Kraft
Embellishments: Grosgrain Ribbon; Sequins; Crystal Stickles
