Pink & Brown is so Downtown!

I enjoyed making the last gift set so much, why re-invent the wheel? This time, I packaged the gift set in a Clearly Creative Card Box by PaperTrey. This set will be going to a spunky pastor's wife in Florida, who is beautiful inside and out! Seriously, she's got it going on ... Alicia just drips of Pink & Brown ... she is SO downtown!
These designer papers are scrumptious! The SU brown pin-dot is a perfect compliment to the pink flowers from the Basic Gray InFuse collection. Once again, I simply used 2 inch strips of brown, and positioned them differently on each card. I admit, after using my JustRite stamper for these monogram sets, I went online and ordered the Harmony Classic Circle III stamp Ensemble and for only #3.95 extra, I was able to get a bonus buy on the Christmas Ensemble. What? A girl can't covet something?!?

The first three cards are matted in SU chocolate brown (above). The next three cards are cut to cover the card perfectly (below).
On the unmatted cards, there is a thin strip of SU chocolate brown which adds definition.

Finally, I added some pink rhinestones to each card for a little bling. I really love these colors! Now if only my name were Alicia!
