Pretty in Pink Part 2

I  have had a thing for pink this last week or so, and whilst looking for a challenge or two to create to, as well as a need to make a card for a friend, I once again used this colour.  My overall colour combination was however inspired by the delightful Easter Blog Design over at the Paper Cutz Challenge Blog.  Even though we are heading into Autumn here in Australia I am reaching for spring colours which are used frequently to represent Easter.




The Stamptacular Sunday Challenge this week #103 "Are you talking to me" asked for the sentiment to be the main feature of your creation, whilst Challenge #83 over at the Paper Cutz Challenge Blog was simply "Your Choice".

I also chose to add some dimension and shine to my sponged and stamped background by embossing some of the flowers with my Crystal Effects rather than embossing powder which meant I could also enter the Paper Sundaes Challenge #61 this week which was to use either wet or dry embossing.  And lastly the Pile It On Challenge #12  was to use Pearls and Rhinestones and Bling, hence the three rather large rhinestones on the sentiment panel. 

Recipe:  Cardstock/Paper:  SU Whisper White and Pixie Pink, Echo Park Be Mine Digital Paper.  Ink:  Stampin' Up! Pixie Pink, Old Olive and Baja Breeze  Stamps: Occassional Greetings, Vintage Vogue and Summer Breeze all from Stampin' Up!  Other:  3 Large Rhinestones, Stampin' Up! Crystal Effects (Embossing)
