Embellish the Cure Challenge



I'm back today with my card for the Embellish the Cure Color Challenge , which, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October), is to use two shades of pink, with gray and bling!

I made a card with a new (to me) and quite possibly the most beautiful snowflake set ever, Snowflake Serenade. I also made a notepad using the same snowflakes and the new set Take Note. Here is the notepad open:




And here it is closed.



Thanks for looking!
Melissa

Such elegant snowflakes and gorgeous font--love both your beautiful card and the notepad! I don't have this set but have often been tempted to order it. It's just so hard to add the older sets when there are so many exciting new intros!

oooh Melissa! YOu made those snowflakes even more elegant in the deicate shades of pink. So lucky you got your hands on the take note set too.

Shirley said...

Ooh! I really like your pink and gray snowflake card.

Beautiful job on both the card and the notebook! I wouldn't have thought to use pink with snowflakes, but you have made it look so great!

Aimes said...

OK I NEED Snowflake Serenade! LOL!
Melissa your card is truly stunning! Honestly, I LOVE it! Love the contrast between the pinks and greys and the placement of the snowflakes balance so well! Oh this definitely goes in my Melissa's top 5! I feel another CASE coming on...!

I love, love, love your card and notebook. The colours are really beautiful. I've always loved that stamp set, especially the font, but it does not snow in SA so I've got to be sensible and not buy a set for a couple of words. LOL!
