Pretty in Pink

Today, I have finished a card that I started yesterday while Sophie had a little snooze. I am entering it into two challenges

First is Retro Sketches with this layout

and Fab Friday with these juicy colours

Here's my card

I started by stamping the flower head on a white card base in SS and rounding two corners. I then cut some PiP , CC, LL, and white Nesties Labels in the BS and layered them together to make the frill at the bottom. Some pink card was put through the BS in an embossing folder, and the bottom cut to shape to mimic the frill, before all being placed on the base. 

The flower was stamped on the white Nestie label, which in turn was layered on CC and LL labels and stuck on the base with 3D pads. A big white bow and the black sentiment were added as the final touches.
Supplies :

Card = Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Pretty in Pink, Clarity Silk, and white base FMS
Stamps = Ornate Flowers and Verve
Inks = Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Blushing Bride, Black, and Sahara Sand
Tools = Big Shot, SU Fan EF, and Nestabilities
Extras = 3D pads and ribbon

I was at the Dr's this morning, and have been diagnosed as a Diabetic now, so another ailment to add to my health list. Oh well, there is always someone worse off than me, so I'll not moan about it.

Hope you bloggers are all well and dandy out there, and have a good weekend. 

Be back soon
