Rococo Rose In Gold Taste is a pink card with a pink cat. I am participating in a challenge to use Pink in a card, which is not easy for me since I do not have a lot of pink, and I do not think in pink! Fortunately, Stampin’ Up! has a lot of shades to choose from, so I selected three three and posted them on my Facebook page for opinions. The votes were unanimous for Rococo Rose, so I made this card with my favorite paper in the annual catalog “In Good Taste”.
I looked at several stamps and combinations for the card, trying to be careful to not cover up much of the beautiful designer paper. So, I finally settled on a simple birthday sentiment from Many Mates, the cat punch, and a very simple layout. Quick and easy, with colors that make me smile.
