In the Pink!

Kylie, Founder of Addicted to Stamps and More! challenge blog, Addicted to CAS challenge blog and Happy Little Stampers, has a special challenge on her blog, following her news that she's going to be a Nanna!  The challenge is to make a card in predominently blue or pink.  Quite by chance, I was going to make a post this week with a card I made recently for a friend's daughter who recently gave birth to a baby girl, so I'm posting two pink cards  today.

The first card is a CAS card using one of the dies from the Sue Wilson 'Family Tree!  I die cut the tree from the white card and again from paler pink card.  I then inlaid the white die cut into the aperture left in the pink card.  Next I die cut just the leaves from dark pink card, then inlaid them in the spaces.  I also used Sue Wilson 'Double Pierced Rectangle and Circle' die.

I'm joining in the following challenges with this card:
 Kylie's "I'm going to be a Nanna" Competition!
Die Cut Diva's May Challenge ~ Flowers or trees, bushes and grass will count too! 

This is the card I made recently for my friend's daughter.

I used the Sue Wilson 'Shadow Box Collection - New Arrival' set of dies.  The heart, ducks and feet are raised up on foam pads. 

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:

Two interesting and really pretty cards Liz and both with the family theme. I adore the inlaid tree and a great idea to use a different pink for the leaves, and then the baby shadow box card with all the different and such cute images. x
