Pretty in pink


Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far? Stormy weather here, can feel it building so perfect day to craft.

I am entering my card in the following challenges-

Divas by Design - Texture (i used mesh behind the DPs, pom pom trim and some skeleton leaves)
In the Pink - Spots or stripes
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge Blog - For a friend
lovely hAnglar or sweet Magnolia - Use 3 different embellishments
Magnolia Forever Challenge Blog - Pink
ABC Challenge Blog - 'V' is for Vibrant

So for this challenge I thought 'why not try something different' and ive been itching to try the embossing the image with white and then colouring with DI's. So after a couple of images i wass hooked!!!!

So I used Summer Flower Tilda she is embossed and coloured with DI's. The papers have these gorgeous poker dots on them, and are from the Kaisercraft collection called 'Pitter Patter'. I layered up the papers and added in a doily to add another layer to it. I used pink pom pom trim, some bright fuchsia mesh behind the main image and a fuchsia skeleton leaf to add some texture. The flowers are from WOC and Kiasercraft.

The 3 embellies I used are - a skeleton leaf, a resin lock from Melissa Frances, and some pink brads.

I then used a lovely pale pink ribbon which has white poker dots on it and matches the DPs. The Lace is a shade brighter and is from my stash. I used this gorgeous rhinestone ribbon along the top.  Then tied an organza ribbon.The sentiment reads 'For a sweet friend' and is from La La Land Crafts.

 Finally, I added some rhinestone hearts, and some shocking pink rhinestones as these look a bit like dots.

I hope you like my card.
