Pretty in Pink

Recently I got a call from my friend who is getting married, asking me to make her a monogram card so I got thinking on how to make her a really special card......saw the challenge on JustRite papercrafts and immediately knew how I wanted this card to look. So here's a look in my window.

I had a lot of fun creating this card. My card base measures 5 1/4" X 5 1/4". I knew right away I wanted to use spellbinders gold ornament one die.....lately seems like this my go to die template. So I cut out two triangular ornaments and stuck them at the opposite corners of my card base. I wanted approximately 1" distance between the triangles so thats how I came up with 5 1/4" square base. I added the two smaller triangular ornaments at the other two ends. Filled the depression with pink stickles to give it sparkle. Cut out a rectangular shaped window for my monogram and framed the window with spellbinders floral oval, scalloped ovals large and fancy tags. Inside the card I stamped my monogram with the Just Rite monogram and Damask border stamps. Framed the monogram piece with spellbinders marvelous squares. Had to add some bling to the card. Also not sure if the picture shows but I also sprayed the monogram with tattered angels dazzling diamond glimmer mist.

Products I used:

Stamps : JustRite monogram and Damask Borders
paper: Gina K. Designs
Accessories: Spellbinders gold ornament one, floral ovals, scalloped oval large, fancy tags and marvelous squares, 3D Foam circles, pink stickles, tattered angels glimmer mist, want 2 scrap black rhinestones.
