Six Chicks Sketch and Product Challenge #14


Well, here we are again... It's time for another sketch and product challenge with the Limelight crew! Our wonderful sketch this week is brought to us by the talented, the luv-lee (heehee!) Lee Murphy! The product we are focusing on this time around is PINK BLING! Does it GET any better than that??

I had lots of fun with this card. I started with a base of WorldWin DoubleMates in Fairy Tale Pink. Then I used my paper trimmer to cut a window, and I adhered some acetate. I just loved using the acetate with this layout! I used the old SU! folk heart punch to punch the hearts. And, just as an FYI, I glued a heart on the inside of the card on the backs of the hearts on the acetate so that the glued blank side of the hearts wouldn't show when the card is opened. We want pretty insides, too, right?? And another thing... I loved using the DoubleMates for this card because it's two-sided, and the slightly darker pink color really helps the hearts stand out on the acetate! :)

For the sentiment, I adhered Pink Paislee Sweet Cakes Press-Ons (rub-ons). I LOVE this "Do you like me?" sentiment! SO CUTE for V-Day! :) And the Pink Paislee rub-ons go on like BUTTAH.... I cut it out using my Oval Coluzzle template and matted it on the Urban Prairie patterned paper from Basic Grey. This was also the paper I used for my hearts. The sentiment is popped up on Circle Pop-It Shapes. To finish, I went CRAZY with Soft Pink Rhinestones! Love it!

Here are the details of the challenge:
