Pink Dream

For this entry into Verve's July Diva challenge, I used a sentiment from their Believe set, which contains many lovely sentiments for breast cancer survivors and awareness.  I think it would speak to anyone, though, who needs some support.  And of course, I had to make it in pink.  The challenge is to use some of our hoarded favorite papers, and I did; these are some of my favorites : Pink Paislee's "Sweetness" (the roses), girls' paperie "vintage whimsy", and BoBunny "tutu dot", along with some hand-dyed seam binding to match.  I love how this turned out.


 supplies: cream parchment cardstock, design papers above, Verve #VS-09-046 Believe, versafine onyx black ink, nesties labels one, winter white seam binding dyed with antique linen and spun sugar distress inks, pink button, natural twine


Because of these lovely roses, I'm also entering this into Moxie Fab World's "Fanatical about Botanical" challenge.
