Some Favorites

One of my favorite color combinations is pink and green and I use it quite often. It is feminine and has a touch of nature about it, don't you think? Especially this card...with the leaf patterns.

The tiny sentiment says "Time to Celebrate" which I figured could be used for a variety of occasions.
This card fits a few different challenges and one of them (Our Creative Corner) said to use a hoarded item...that would be the ruffley pink ribbon. I use it sparingly and only have a little bit left now! The gold button is another hoarded item...had a set of 3 of them for several years now and this is the 1st one I've used! I love it! Both of these special items were found at thrift stores really cheap!
stamps: "Medallion de Fleur" by Clear Dollar Stamps
"Kaleidoscope Medallions" by JustRite
"Fancy Accents" by StampingScrapping Design
ink: Memento "Bamboo"
dies: Spellbinders "Standard Circles Lg" + paper hole punch
colored pencils
cardstock -from my stash
ribbon, gold elastic twine, button...all from my stash

Challenges: - #116 Anything Goes - "No More Shopping Sins"
