Pretty in Pink

Another card for Winnie & Walter's Playdate #2 Challenge.........I loved pulling out this big rose and leaves from The Craft's Meow and using the set again; it's too gorgeous to be collecting dust!

Pretty in Pink (Playdate#2)

I began by repeatedly stamping the rose (TCM Beautiful Spring, by Nina Brackett, now discontinued) all over my card front in Bubble Gum ink.  Next I embossed it and some leaves in white and painted them with diluted picked raspberry and mowed lawn distress inks, with a yellow marker for the center.  These were then cut out and popped above the base, and then I overstamped the sentiment, using Winnie & Walter's The Big, the Bold, and the Happy and The Big, the Bold and You  in picked raspberry ink.  Finished with some pink pearls.

Here's our inspiration photo:

Guess it's pretty obvious by now that I'm enamored of these pink roses........and I don't think I'm done yet!

Thanks for stopping by - and for your comments.
