Shopping Our Stash Challenge

I'm entering this card at the Shopping Our Stash Pink (gah!) UFO challenge.

And I have to admit, I'm with Leslie Hanna, who inspired this challenge-I can't stand pink.

I have always been a tall girl- 5 ft. 6 in. tall in 5th grade. And my Mom always wanted to dress me in pink. I looked like a huge Shirley Temple and hated it. The only reason I have this much pink on a card is because it came with other stuff!

Here is my card-

First off, all of this came out of my stash! The paper-the middle border came out of my scrap stash, and I used a Fiskars Lace punch to dress it up a bit. The pink polka dot also came out of the scrap stash. Ribbon is from American Crafts and came in one of those 20 packs you can get real cheap at Tuesday Morning sometimes. The light pink is from a 6 x 6 Avery Elle pack I won from Paper Crafts, and the sentiment is from the scrap stash too. Paper Smooches Pretty Momma set, Spellbinders Labels Nine die, My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle die and unknown pink pearls make up the sentiment box. The pink roses are Prima, and I used a scrap of green to punch (Martha Stewart) the greenery. The background paper is from My Little Shoebox.

This would have been a great card for my Mom, who passed away Valentines Day 2015. She loved the green and pink combo alot. I think I'll give it to her on Mother's Day, just so she knows how much I loved her and miss her.

Thanks for visiting.

Beautiful Mother's Day Creation! I have tons of floral papers in my stash but seldom use them. Your project has inspired me to pull them out and see what I can create! Thanks for joining us this week at Shopping Our Stash!
