Am I Too Pink?

You know that saying "Does this make my butt look big?"  Well, I'm wondering if my card is too pink for ya'll?  Woo!  It is kinda bright, aint' it?  Bertie (my alter ego for those of you who don't know Bertie...and at least I admit to having one---ha! ha!) and I were up late the other night tryin' to git our CCEE challenge card done.  Shirt the Squirt, aka Shirley (wannabcre8tive on SCS) is our June CCEE challenge hostess and gave us a fabo sketch challenge this week.



Well, as you might have guessed, Bertie loves the bright colors and she really wanted to use this Pink Passion in the sketch design this week.  I liked my idea to use the black and white designer paper squares, and Bertie just kept insisting that it called for Pink Passion, so I just let her have her way.  It's so much easier than listening to her yammer on and on and on.  LOL!  I did convince Bertie, though, that it would look better to do a watermark effect for our cupcake image behind the happy birthday sentiment.  I colored the stamp with Pretty in Pink and Going Gray markers and then stamped it off once first before adhering the image onto the cardstock.


So, whadda ya think?  Would we make someone lose their cookies or go blind iffin' we wuz to send this bright birthday card to someone?    :-) 

If you'd like to play along in our challenge and see the magnificent cards my team mates made, please check it out at our CCEE Stampers blog!

Happy Stampin'!!!

ya know...that first commentor brought back such good memories with her mention of that old-fashioned licorice candy...my father used to love it and one of the 'flavors' did share the same colors as your beautifully vibrant card....I LOVE the passion in this creation....it is bold and FABULOUS.....Bertie and Char work together well as a team

ummmm NO! There can never be too much pink according to my youngest daughter... her room is painted that shade of pink and I tend to feel light-headed and dizzy when I spend too much time in there - LOL! I love it with the black! Awesome card!

Charlene said...

Awesome! I adore the shapes and agree with the comments that they look like candy...yummy. Never can have too much pink, especially when it's paired up with black.
