Pink and white

Howdy everyone!

The theme this month over at LOTV is Pink and White, and I've finally finished a card for the challenge. It's taken me almost 2 weeks, but I got there in the end, lol.

I used one of the new stamps. Isn't she a cutie?

Please forgive the yellow-ish tint to the photo... I think my bulb is on the way out. will have to replace it!

I decided to keep the bears white, with just a hint of pink here and there. You see, I used to have a furry friend (a bunny, rather than a bear...), that looked white, but if his fur was parted, it was pink underneath. I always thought it was a great effect, and tried to replicate it here with the teddies.

I also had to replace the handles of the drawers with pearls. I had no choice in this, lol.

Now they need to bring out this stamp with a boy instead of a girl, and it'll be perfect for my son. He has over 100 bears! And he'll be getting more on the 21st, which is his 11th birthday.
He has Aspergers, and bears are one of the things he obsesses over...

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

LOTV Ideas to inspire - Pink and White
Sister Act card challenge - Anything goes
Chocolate, coffee and cards - Monochromatic
Shopping our stash - Something already out on your desk (ok, technically that's everything, since almost all my craft supplies live on my desk (no craft room, just a desk and a little piece of floor!), however, going by the spirit of the challenge, rather than the letter, the "out on my desk" would be the butterfly die-cuts, which have been sitting close at hand waiting for the perfect card to put them on...)

That's it from me for now. Don't forget to enter my candy if you haven't yet, and I'll see you tonight (scheduled, as I'll be sleeping!) with my Crafting with Dragonflies DT post.

Just gorgeous, Sammy. Great idea to leave the bears white. I love all the layers and of course the pearl drawer handles had to be pearls. Fab! xx
