What I do know is that as un-disciplined as I am, I had to try some at once. Next to the swirls that ended up on the christening/communion/confirmation card, I used a wonderful fantasy pattern. And the outcome shows that I'm obviously in a pink phase:
I used soft pink yarn, and combined it with a silver one. In the middle of the pattern, I placed a pink shimmering piece that has a long history of waiting in my storage. I once got it from my sister to "use somehow" and it's rather a piece of junk than a gemstone you use in crafting, but it looks like I finally found the perfect spot for it.
Once the pattern was stitched and the pink piece fixed, it all still seemed a little boring to me, so I added a couple of pink gemstones, and white pearls in various sizes.
As the centerpiece is rather rich, I decided not to use any special ornaments in the background, just a simple pink floral background paper.
