Shiny and Pink!

Happy Friday to everyone.  It is a beautiful day here in Iowa.  Today's challenge card was to be Clean and Simple, use pink, be shiny and use a bordered sentiment.  I think I got it covered.  I started with a Papertrey Ink white card base and silver heat embossed the Wish Big sentiment.  Then I scored the lines using the Martha Stewart score board.  The silver lines were made with a Sharpie.  To make the candle I rolled up some old Stampin Up paper in a tight tube and tied it with SU silver cord.  I had picked up the tinsel after Christmas at Hobby Lobby and I cut a small piece to add the flame.  Attached it with Score Tape.



That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. FUN! What a great use of tinsel - so much movement and interest! I also like the scoring and the silver lines that mimic the scoring around the sentiment!
