pink hats

October is Breat Cancer Awareness month, and I am going pink.
Well, not all pink! But definitely the focus of this card.
~ Ü ~

I've used a Hero Arts stamp for this. It is stamped on pink misted paper using vintage photo DI. Love that mottled look. The image is matted and layered over pink satin ribbon and lace. The white lace has been misted in pink to match.

The flowers are a combination of dovecraft punches and cuttlebug dies. After embossing, they are inked and layered. Flower centres are gold sequins, and the largest flower has a pink button with gold twine.
The leaves are sizzix. Corner accents are cuttlebug, cut from brown card. I've added pink liquid pearls in swirls and dots to finish.

playing along with these challenges . . .

Thanks for stopping by!
