I Love Pink!

There is something about pink that just makes me feel good. There are other colors that I love, but pink really lifts my spirits. Today I chose my ribbon for my card first, and it is a beautiful coral pink color with a little bit of a white thread running through the middle. It's organdy ribbon that I got at Hobby Lobby for $1 (half off!) and I love it! Today was the first day to use it, and I chose a "Dare to Get Dirty" Challenge at Splitcoaststampers, "It's All About the Ribbon" to inspire me and get me going. Pretty pink ribbon and stamping - what could be better? To view the challenge, you must be a SCS Fan Club member, so I am not listing the link here. I chose another DTGD Challenge, hosted by my good friend Holly (aka Toy) for the sketch.

Here is what I came up with:

I used a verse from the set "Sing to the Lord" by Our Daily Bread Designs. Since I am a music teacher, this set is perfect for me! The ribbon determined what papers and colors I would use.

Stamps: Sing to the Lord by Our Daily Bread Designs
Paper: Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Rose Romance (retired), Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey DP
Ink: Purely Pomegranate
Accessories: Paper Frills by Doodlebug, Primas, mini white brads, Cuttlebug EF, Marvy Scalloped Oval punch, organdy ribbon (Hobby Lobby)

Thanks for stopping by today!

I love your card. I've never seen fine organza ribbon with stitching in it like that before. And it was that range of Basic Grey that really got me into them - a gift from a friend.
I like the sentiment too. I should have been practicing piano today for accompanying DH in a French-speaking church on Sunday. But today all the music was in my heart - tomorrow it will have to move out of my heart and into my fingers :-)
Hope Fiona is settling in well.
