In this particular set, which was super easy, I used all Spellbinder dies and left the uppermost die cut in the die in order to sponge pink around it and still keep a nice crisp white border.
In this next set I went again with the pre-made sentiments mounted on pink paper and just highlighted those sentiments with a whole lot of white texture. Texture in the way of layers, cuts and embossing. I like the clean look of this!
This particular set has a little story behind it. I had this card made without the ribbon, the polkadot paper, the middle scalloped layer or the bling and sentiment. Instead it had a glittered pink breast cancer ribbon popped up in the center and it was the first set I made. And, I just couldn't stand it until I finally carefully deconstructed the card, changed it up a bit and ended up with what you see here. I am glad that I did! I know look back to the pix of the first take and blech! So, sometimes it pays to sit on a card and revisit it with new energy later. I was so "done" with the set the first time around that I couldn't conceive of ripping it apart to make something better. But, after a day or two passed I was able to dive back in a change it around to something I liked much better.....so the moral of the story??? Never throw away those completed but ugly duckling projects....later they may become a beautiful swan ;-D
