Cardz 4 Galz: Pretty in Pink

Good morning.  Today's challenge at Cardz 4 Galz is a very girly one:  pretty in pink.  Those of you who have known me for a while will know that I used to avoid pink like the plague, but lately I seem to be using it quite a lot in my cards.  Maybe I have a girly side after all!

Anyway, this is my DT card.  I decided to use some of my recent craft show acquisitions - these lovely flower stamps.  I coloured the back of some vellum pink usign Promarkers an then stamped the flowers onto the front using Versamark.  I then embossed the flowers using white embossing powder and cut them out.  I shaped them using an embossing tool.

I embossed the bottom layer of my card using an embossing folder, then added some layers of patterned paper and the sentiment, which is stamped and embossed using pink embossing powder.  .  I then stuck the flowers onto the card and added gems in their centres.

I hope you can join us for this week's Cardz 4 Galz challenge.

Sian. xx

Gorgeous card Sian! I love those flowers. Was it a flower die or stamps or both that you used to create those awesome flowers? I would love to know how you did it; and what flower stamp/die you used? Thanks so much for sharing. Have an awesome day! Hugs, Gloria
