CR84FN challenge #23

Here's another card for CR84FN's challenge this week, using light pink, black and cream:


supplies: pink, black and cream cardstocks, papers from The Paper Studio (music), foof-a-La (swirls), and My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found" (pink paisley), Penny Black 4037K Mixed Media, versafine onyx black ink and clear embossing powder, pink marker, PTI Embellishments (sentiment), spun sugar distress ink on edges,  Martha Stewart Monarch butterfly punch, pink pearls, ecru lace, pink ribbon

I just got this Penny Black collage stamp and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.  It was embossed in black and then I just colored in the poppies in a pale pink marker.  Added some dps, lace, pearls, ribbon, a punched butterfly, and the sentiment.  I'll also be entering this into Penny Black's flowers challenge.  

Here's the inspiration picture for the challenge - beautiful colors, don't you think?
