CCCB week 10 ~ Pink, Purple, and Pearls

It's me again, June,,, (lina beas) this weeks challenge is pink, purple, and pearls.  I don't think this is going to be a hard challenge because I think everyone loves that combonation, so I guess where the real challenge comes in is what unusual way or different way to use them together.  With all the gorgeous and clever entries we have been getting on our previous challenges I just know we're all in for a big treat, so get out those flowers, ribbons, laces, papers, pearls and anything else you can think of and give us your best shot.  There just might be a little bonus prize in there so enter as many times as you like and make them unique.  Can't wait and good luck to everyone.

CCCB # 10 ~ Pink, Purple and Pearls

Once again, we are delighted that Leslie from A Creative Mint allowed us to use one of her beautiful artwork again. Leslie's work are simply beautiful, I am sure you will fall in love with A Creative Mint just like we do.

Guest Designer
This week we have the very talented Mindy Baxter joining us as our Guest Designer, thanks for the beautiful card Mindy!

Mindy: My name is Mindy, I'm a SAHM of 3 kiddos, and I've been stamping for almost 4 years now. I love that I have a hobby and place to "escape". I'm on the Magnolia-licious, Just Magnolia, Wild Orchard Crafts, Whiff of Joy Challenges, Fussy and Fancy, Really Reasonable Ribbon GDT, Belles n Whiilsltes GDT. I just LOVE my design teams! My favorite products are Magnolia Stamps, Wild Orchard Flowers, Copics, pearls and crystal swirls and lace/ribbon..... ok, my list can go on and on. I just love making Girly cards and I'm always looking for that extra embellishment to put on my card!
