Pink & Green Smiles


These cards were made and sent to OWH a while ago, but I never posted them and they work for today's OWH midweek throwdown color challenge to use pink & green. I used some pale pink cardstock along with some SU! celery dsp and did some one-sheet wonder cards using assorted punches and ribbons. The sentiment says "You make me smile" and it's from SU! While I'm posting these cards, I'll show you the rest that I made for this grouping...


For this group, I used some yellow & gold card stock, and a different sentiment that says "You are LOVED." I assembled a couple pinwheels to use up the little scraps of paper, adding candi dots to the flower centers on each card.


Here are all 18 cards together. Since SU! retired Certainly Celery green, I figured there was no reason to hang onto the dsp anymore, so I used mostly all of the pack I had left.

Thanks for stopping by today and make it a great Wednesday.  

(Hey Mike Mike Mike Mike! Guess what day it is? Humppppppppp DAY!)

Apparently I watch too much tv, because that hilarious commercial comes to mind every Wednesday :)

Keep smiling :)

Awesome cards, Carol! wow, you've been busy. :) I love that "you are loved" sentiment. Is it Stampin up?

Wow! You got so many lovely cards made for OWH. The colours are gorgeous...too that they retired that pretty green shade!

I love the one that sort of looks like a flattened pinwheel!

Very pretty cards. I like how you paired the papers to create several different cards out the same color scheme.

Oh Wow! What an assortment of cards you managed.Each set is just lovely, and your imagination in using up that Celery paper is marvelous. Loved the different trims on the various cards, and your OWH folks are going to be overwhelmed! Good for you on doing this, and making them so pretty too. TFS & Hugs

"WOW" is all I can say. I had to stare at those pinwheels. Really stunning.

These are some beautiful cards and it was so good that they covered the request for this week's Throw Down. Each of them are so pretty. It's funny because the other day I made a pinwheel card for a birthday card. I adore the You Are Loved sentiment. All your little butterflies and "candy" are very sweet additions. I'm with you on that commercial. Love It. Talk to you soon my friend.

So amazing, Carol. Why can't I get my brain to work in multiples? You always do it so darn well. These are simply gorgeous.

These are fantastic. Love each and every one. Pink and green are my favourite colours to work with but the second set you of colours are super too. hugs Mrs A.
p.s. I have struggled to make just 8 cards this month!

Lee Mae said...

Fabulous set of cards! I love your idea of placing a flower in the center of the pinwheel - it makes a great background. I also really like the circular sentiment for the flower centers too. I love them all!

Lesley Croghan said...

Beautiful cards, Carol.

nwilliams6 said...

Wow - Carol! You are a card making machine! These are lovely - each one is super pretty, but the heart you have doing these for such a great cause is really impressive. Hugz - lots of them!

Deedee Anderson said...

Such a pretty collection of cards, Carol! It's fun to see how, even you used the same papers and punches, no two seem exactly alike.

Cherie from PA said...

These are so beautiful! Love the colors for both sets. I have to keep this in mind so I can make some gift sets. Very impressive. TFS

Loly Borda-Towery said...
