Celebrate in Style

Pretty in Pink - Ribbons N Bows
Just my sort of colours.....
I was inspired by the challenges mentioned at the end of my blog to do this card.
I made lots of attempts at the background using Distress inks, stains and paints in various shades of Pinks.
I am quite new to this technique but love how they all turn out so differently.
Once I was happy with my background I stamped white flourishes and Pink Butterflies and there's a Pink 21 in there too, but it is difficult to see on the photo.
I stamped the Lady and The sentiment in Black Archival Ink.
I masked the lady's dress and sprayed a gold mica mist over the dress area, just to make it stand out a Little more and to add some sparkle.
I popped on a pretty black die along the edge of the card, a pretty Black Bow and a few Pink round sparkly embellishments.
Lastly, I made a sparkly heart and a distressed looking key out of UTEE and molds and attached them to the card.
I mounted the card onto a Black mount to frame the card and and then onto Smooth White card.
I loved doing the card and was really happy how it turned out, hope you like it too?

I now have lots of backgrounds to use on another day.
I love Pink and girly things and was pleased to see these challenges, which I knew I would really enjoy doing xx
I was inspired by the Allsorts Challenge - Pretty in Pink
