Pink Persimmon $25 Gift Certificate Challenge!

HEY GIRLIES! I'm in a MAD hurry tonite because I've got a bunch of the bad girls coming over this weekend for a weekend girls get-together. I'm trying to whip my house into shape tonite, but I wanted to do another quick post to tell you guys that PINK PERSIMMON stamps just turned 1 year old! For their birthday celebration, they are hosting a series of weekly challenges with PRIZES, including a $25.00 gift certificate! The challenge this week is to make ANY CARD with ANY STAMPS or ANY CRAFT PROJECT using the colors pink and orange, as in my card here! Pink and orange are Pink Persimmon's signature colors, so if you want to get inspired, check out their home page for the details, ideas & the colors to use. There will be prizes each week, and it's EASY to enter! Just leave a link to your card on the Pink Persimmon blog HERE
I needed to take a little vacation from my life tonite, so I decided to sit down and get creative and see if I could stamp out some stress by doing the pink & orange challenge. Except it didn't work so well because I ended up fighting with my sewing machine, which was not so pleased that I was using SILK thread in it, and kept jamming up on me. So don't look too closely at the sewing job on this one; mistakes were made, swear words were uttered. But I GOT R DONE! This little 3-tiered cake plate stack is a Pink Persimmon set that will be released June 8th called "Tea and Cake". The flowers come separately from the teapot & teacup, so you can stamp flowers on the cake plates, or on the cups or teapots! I took glimmer-misted crepe paper (Tattered Angels Vintage Pink) and ruffled them behind the teapot and cups to look sort of napkin-ish. OMG I need to go clean! Kick me off of this blog post! Happy Thursday, all!
