In a pink mood tonight

I was wandering through the Splitcoast Stampers gallery recently, which is a wonderful pastime if you happen to have several hours to spare (seriously, don't look if you have an appointment to get to, you might never make it!), and was overcome with inspiration, so had to make these two cards quickly before it went away.

The first card I was inspired by was this one by auntynanny, which I pretty much copied as is, with the exception of the River Rock and Soft Sky. I had a "pink with pink" thing going on and had to use Pretty In Pink (anyway, I don't have any River Rock ribbon, but I do have some Pretty In Pink!).

Supplies used: Garden Whimsy and Paisley Background
stamp sets, Purely Pomegranate, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Basic Black and Wild Wasabi cardstock, Purely Pomegranate ink, Pretty in Pink 5/8" grosgrain ribbon.

Then there was this card by JulieRamos, which caught my eye because of the use of the white gel pen and white ink on the lower panel. The set she has used, Priceless, is still on my wish list, so I improvised with Baroque Motifs (that swirl is getting quite a beating lately!), and used the single small flower from Office Accoutrements as the focal piece.

Do you like my scalloped circle? I marked the edges with a pin then punched holes out around the edge with my Crop-A-Dile - it is designed so you can look through a hole to see exactly where you're going to punch.
