Pink Think

Hi Everyone!
I have another of the all occasions cards for you today.  (This is one of the 35 cards I made for my BF.)  I went  Clean and Simple with this one.

The card base is made from White CS.  The dry embossed layer is made from Blushing Bride (Stampin' Up).    After dry embossing the pink CS, I punched a rectangle.  Don't punch the rectangle first and then run it through the Cuttlebug.  The edges of the punched shaped will be all messy.  So emboss first and then punch. The image (Stampendous)  was stamped with black Stazon and watercolored.  I added a wide sheer pink ribbon to finished it off.  Here is a close up view.

And now about a few fun Challenges?!
