Orange & Pink Go Together

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, there was a challenge issued to the Fiskateers to join the famous Fiskars color of orange with the awareness color of pink. I decided to take on the challenge, and this is what I came up with.

I used a Kraft Outlet Large Lunch Bag Kraft Blank Note Card as my base and added some papers from Pink Paislee and Echo Park Paper Company. The stamps are all from The Girls' Paperie.

Two Quick Cards

Here are two quick cards I made recently for some friends who are having babies. They aren't necessarily "baby" cards...but I thought they worked well.
(Sorry for the lack of staging for pretty pictures...I made these and used these in a rush, so I didn't have time to take pictures like I normally try to do.)

The first card has a place on the inside to insert a gift card.

For the second card I embellished a smaller envelope for a gift card.

I'm not feeling well today so I am just going to leave you with this quick post. Below are the supplies I used for these cards (most of which you can get at Kraft Outlet).
