Staying with the pink theme today

I have now spent a lot of my day on the computer (too much really) but I am happy with the changes I have made. The new template makes it much easier to add new links and do the changes I wanted to do so it should be easier to keep up to date :)

I thought I would post this Stinkin Cute card to keep in the pink theme. The inspiration for the glittery patterned paper came from some paper I picked up at CompuPro last week. It was Christmas paper with lots of glitter. I decided to make some of my paper I already had on hand glittery with stickles. You could of course use 2-way glue and dazzling diamonds (or another fine glitter) but I thought this would be a little less messy.

I used my orange and pink stickles on all of the dots and set aside to dry. I then stamped the skunk with black craft ink (I like this one for more solid images) and set aside to dry.

Once they were dry I added the flower (inked with markers) and put it together with some May Arts ribbon (hot pink with polka dots). I think I might add a little stickles or a crystal to the center of the flower for a little more bling. The picture really doesn't show the sparkles as much as in real life.

Oh, Karen! What are you doing to me. I was upset when all your links didn't link-Amy Rysavy and Jan Tink are the only ones I visit regularly and of course they are the two that weren't showing up. Now I check and you've added a zillion more!? Are you forgetting I don't have a computer at home and am very limited here at work?? What's a girl to do? Guess I'll turn into an addict like you!!

Karen, Seriously! That card is Stinkin' Cute! I had the privelege of seeing it IRL. It made me want to pull 'my skunks' off the shelf! Thanks for sharing!
