U-R-A Delight

I love pink and green - so when I saw the challenge at The Pink Elephant, I knew I had to do it! And I wanted to use my new (FREE) stamps from SU! There is a definition for each letter of the alphabet and some word the coincides with it. The d was delight. I think that just summed up these fun bright colors! BUT after I was all finished, I realized the challenge was pink, green and BROWN. So, I brillantly added in some brown using my slot punch (SU!) and brown ribbon (CTMH) and some cardstock to accent the little (pinchers? I don't know what those are called.) and a brown button over the green button.

I love the other little punch called the Spiral Punch from SU! which I recently found out you can get a similar one from EK Success at Michael's...more expensive though - even with a 50% off coupon.

The U-R-A is from an alphabet stamp set from CTMH and I went over it with Martha' Stewarts glue pen and Doodlebug's flock.

I don't know who I am going to give this to, but I hope they love it when I do!
Side note: this card took me just as long as the other one...well, 20 minutes less - and that was with the brown-add :) Why is my creativity taking so long tonight? I'm done for the night, gotta rest up and hopefully I will be a lot quicker with these cards another night!
Can't wait for hubby to come home! (He's DJing...again) I miss him, but he should be back very shortly! YEAH :)


  1. aww... your favorite colors!! Cute!

  2. wow those definition stamps are brilliant - I would love to see the whole set. I think this one would work for baby cards too, but I love what you have done with it - whoever finally gets it will be over the moon.

  4. Wonderful card!! I am amazed at how easily you were able to come up with a plan to add in the brown. I would have been upset and started a new card for the challenge. WTG!! Thanks for joining us at TPE this week!
