girl in pink

Hi again!
It's still October and I have another pink card to show.
~ Ü ~

This card is using the Top Tip #54 sketch from Top Tip Tuesday (sorry, no tip today). Basically pink, it is playing along with the pink challenges over at The Crazy Challenge (CC #87), Incy Wincy Design (challenge #114), My Sheri Crafts (challenge #70) and  Dare to be Sassy Thursday #93. I've added touches of green to create affinity with the green hat in the vintage print. And touches of brown, for a more vintage feel.

The base is stamped with Viva Decor stamps, with a strip of pink vintage print (free download from Cardmaking & Papercrafts), and pink lacy border using a Fiskars punch. All distressed and edged with tattered rose DI, and stitched.

The main image is framed by a cluster of flowers, butterfly and flourish atop lace and pink satin ribbon. The flourish is a sizzix die cut in kraft, which I have inked in pink, and edged in vintage photo DI. The flowers & leaves are a mix of dies and punches.

This cheery lynn butterfly die cut has been inked, coated with pearl pen and topped with a flower gem.

Other challenges

Thanks for stopping by!
