pink for color throwdown #110

I can honestly say that I am NOT a fan of pink! So when I saw that this week's color throwdown was shades of pink, I saw it as not only a colour challenge, but a very personal mental challenge as well. :) 

But I took it in stride and created not just 1 but 2 cards using the dreaded colour! (it's not that bad really!)

I have many friends with birthdays this month and a couple of them LOVE pink so it was for a great cause. This one was made using PTI cardstock (vellum and smokey shadow), the hearts are cut out from basic grey's olivia line (12 X 12 size), and the polka dot paper is from a digital kit by Jen Allyson called Ornament Ice Blue Papers available at 2peas. I altered the colour of it in Photoshop Elements. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and also the stripes I stamped in Versamark on the vellum.

  This card was made using a another digi kit from 2peas called Rhinestones and Skulls by Holly Brooke Jones. The sentiment, I think, is Close to My Heart.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I am going to the Home and Garden show tomorrow in hopes of getting a glimpse of Ty Pennington and maybe even an autograph if I can handle waiting around that long! I can not watch one episode of Extreme Makeover without crying!

Thanks for stopping by! :)


  1. You did wonders with Pink! Love both of these clean and simple cards.

  2. Such pretty CAS cards...I love how you used the Olivia hearts here!

  3. Hi Kasia! These are great cards - and you did well with the Pink challenge!

  4. THESE are adorable! You sure could have fooled me - you + pink! You seem to get along WONDERFULLY!!! But I know how some colors click and some don't! Your work is excellent and these cards clearly showcase your talent and no nonsense approach to a good color challenge! Great job! You're a sweetie! Thanks for your kind words on my recent post! Yipeeee!

  5. Kasia, you are so funny! These cards are WONDERFUL! And I am not usually a fan of skulls, but I think the second card is a hoot! The first one is equally as sweet! Thanks for playing with the CTD this week!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! It really makes my day. :)
