My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog Hop Challenge

The challenge (My Pink Stamper Challenge) is to make a card that includes the color red, a circle, a pink ribbon and more than 1 Pink Stamper Stamps.

This is what I came up with

I had been wanting to make a Joy Fold card since Mary on Cardz TV made a cute one recently.
Here is the link to her video Cardz TV Joy Fold Card. I used her dimensions for this card.  I had made Joy Fold cards as Christmas cards in 2009 with different dimensions but the concept is the same.  Here is the link to those

For this card I used this paper from DCWV Taj Mahal stack.  It has the red and pink and circles, so it fit the requirements quite well!.  For the front I cut a 2.5" red circle from Cricut Essentials which was pre-loaded on my Cricut Expression 2.  Then I cut a pink circle at 1.75". On the pink circle I stamped "Pink"ing of you! from My Pink Stamper's Pinka-licious stamp set with my Champagne Versa Mark pad, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and hit it with my heat tool.
For the inside I added a lighter color paper and stamped the "On your special day" from My Pink Stamper's Family & Friends stamp set.  I can use this for several different occasions!
I added the pink ribbon as a closure but it was too wide and did not look good tied in a bow.  So I taped the piece on the left down on the inside flap of the card with Terrifically Tacky Tape and pulled the other side through on the front to make my knot.

So did I meet the requirements?  Red - check.  Circle - check.  Pink Ribbon - check.  More than 1 My Pink Stamper stamp - check!

This challenge was a bit of a challenge for me, but that is what made it fun.
