Summer of Color Week 2: Easy-Breezy Card

I am continuing to create with the weekly color palettes from Summer of Color.  I made a card again this week, but my approach was different this time.  For Week One, I splashed around with watercolor paints.  This week, however, I embraced a simpler, much more orderly look. 
 
Supplies: cardstock from Neenah Paper; patterned paper from Jillibean Soup; cut-apart paper from October Afternoon; ribbon from Scrapbook Fantasies; glitter from Ranger; pen from Zig.

The color prompt for this week is 1 pink + 1 pink + 1 orange.  I have a sister-in-law who adores the color pink, so this card is for her.


For the most part, the lines of this card are straight and orderly.  But, to add just a touch of contrast, I swiped on a little bit of pink glitter.  You can see it better in this detail photo than in the main photo.  Hope you like the card!  Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

There you go again, making something both fun and functional. And this time, you even have a recipient in mind. What a lovely card, and I know your SIL is going to love it. I also like how it's mailable. I've seen cards where the kitchen sink was added to the card, and finding an envelope and/or mailer would be a problem, plus the added postage costs would be prohibitive.
