Perfectly Pink and Snowy Greetings

Happy Tuesday evening my dear friends!!!! I am so happy to be home and back in the crafting mode!!! I pulled out my PTI stamps which always makes me happy!!!! Add a little pink to the equation and I am in crafter's heaven!!!!

Today I used Kazan's sketch #66:


Here's my take on the sketch:
Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI Peace be Still and On Ice
Patterned Paper: October Afternoon and Webster's Pages
Cardstock: PTI Kraft and Rustic Cream
Ink: PTI Fresh Snow and Dark Chocolate; Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger, Brushed Corduroy
Fancy Pants Pom Pom Ribbon
Seam Binding died with Egg Shell Copic Marker
Kaiser Craft Pearls dies with Aqua Copic Marker
PTI Vintage Cream Button
CI Imaginations Paper Lace
Martha Stewart Glitter
EK Success Snowflake Punch
I was looking for a cream ribbon to embellish my card. I love using seam binding to embellish my cards, but my seam binding is a nice crisp white color. I am so thankful for my Copic Markers!!! A little Egg Shell makes a white ribbon nice and creamy. A little red ink leftover on your craft sheet while you are coloring, makes for a perfectly pink ribbon!!! I also needed a little more aqua on my card to enhance the background paper and so I decided to try my Copic Markers and see how they would die the pearls. I used a little aqua to color them and wouldn't you know it, I had the perfect pearls for my card!!

I had a blast making today's card. I just love 2 Sketches 4 You!!! It's just the inspiration I need to have a perfectly creative evening!!!

Wishing you a wonderful evening!!! Thanks for stopping by!! I appreciate you!!
