Classic Pink

In my mind, pink, brown and white are a winning combination that will never go out of style. It’s classic. Inspired by some beautiful new stamps and a gorgeous piece of ribbon, today I have a very classic and feminine card to share with you. It’s perfect for any time of year and has no sentiment making it a great card to have on hand.

The beautiful floral damask stamp that I was inspired by is a new background stamp from Market Street Stamps and is called Grace. I know that this is one stamp I’m going to be using a lot!

The focal point of this design is some new Maya Road chipboard. The two pieces are die cut to fit right into each other. I decided to use them together and pop up the center square chipboard piece on some pop dots. The scalloped frame outer piece is spritzed with some white color mist. To create the inner chipboard accent, I’ve covered it with a piece of Sticky Back Canvas for added texture and then stamped and misted it.

Market Street Stamps is having a fun block party this weekend! I hope you’ll join us for some inspiration and play along! All the details are here.

Happy Friday!
