I'm seein' Red...and a TEENY bit of grey :)

Hey everyone, it's a "TRIPLE WHAMMY WEDNESDAY" here as I'm calling it on The Whimsical Butterfly blog...

I have TONS to show you today, but before I do, HAPPY THIRD BIRTHDAY AVA!!! I can't believe my little baby is three. It's amazing to me and I can't wait to celebrate the day with her...I'm off to start that now!

Before I step out for a while, though, I want to show you this card I made using the Pink Papery Studios stamp "All Wrapped Up". I just LOVE this girlie image and it really puts me in the mood to start buying (and MAKING!) and wrapping some amazing gifts!

This was my first DT challenge as a guest with Pink Papery Studios! The challenge was issued by the lovely and talented Cassie and the rules are to use RED and GREY in the color scheme, in honor of it being National Diabetes month. Her Grandfather had it and also her Mother was diagnosed a few years ago. I unfortunately didnt' have ANY Grey cardstock, or even ribbon...wah! I did manage to find this pretty pewter brad though, so I hope it does the challenge justice!

It was fun playing and make sure you check out the Pink Papery Studios website! Amy is still loading up the website with tons of cute stamps, embellishments, and the new "Shimmer IT!" Paints coming soon! I can't wait for those...who doesn't need MORE bling?

Have a great day and I'll see you soon with something prettie...any guesses?!?!? Hugs,

RECIPE: Bazzill CS, Shimmery White by Papertrey

Stamps: All Wrapped Up by Pink Papery Studios (digistamp)

Accessories: Copics, Imaginisce flower and Holly, Red pearls by Craft Studio, Making Memories Vintage Brad
