In the Pink

The Allsorts Challenge finishes tomorrow and I knew I wouldn't get home in time from our break in Devon to make a card.  So, with the limited supplies I took to our caravan, I came up with a CAS card today with the theme 'In the Pink', which I'll add to my box of ready-made cards.

My first problem was that I had no pink card, patterned paper or ink.  I found a pack of card, which included several sheets of pink, in the local Pound Shop.  I had a few dies with me from The Works, so I used the Rocking Horse and a couple of the Stitched Circle dies.  I keep some computer generated sentiments in the caravan, so chose an appropriate one, matted it on pink card and attached it with foam pads.  We stopped in my favourite craft store on the way here and by chance I bought a bottle of 'Party Pink' Nuvo Crystal Drops.  I added three drops in the corner of the card, they are the same colour pink as the card IRL.

I am joining in the following challenges:

We were held up in a traffic jam in Devon today. 😉

  4. Always well worth popping into The Works and the Pound shops - great card made with your limited supplies. Traffic hold-ups are more interesting in the country than in cities and towns!!

  14. Your card is awesome and it just goes to show that there is no way you can stop a card maker from figuring out how to generate a card with limited supplies.
