Pretty in Pink - Charisma Cardz



Back again today with another card to share :)

Todays card is for our new challenge over at Charisma Cardz where this week our theme is 'Pretty In Pink' and we are sponsored by Digistamp Boutique and Crafty Emmas Store.  Both fab prizes! :)

I followed last weeks sketch on Just Magnolia and hand-stitched and layered Papermania papers and kraft coloured card.  I distressed and inked the edges and then painted with white acrylic paint.  The flowers are WOC and they were sprayed with white undercoat model paint, to add to the shabby chic look.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

2 Sisters Challenge - Embossing - the white pearl paper panel is embossed
Craft Your Days Away - Distressing
Papertake Weekly - Happy Highlights - Glitter
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Crafts and Me - Pink and Sparkly
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
Moving Along with the Times - Bloomin Marvelous
Dutch Magnolia Lovers - Kraft, white +1 colour and embossing folder.

Thanks so much for looking at my blog today, and I appreciate all the wonderful comments :)

Oh Alison this is so pretty. What a gorgeous image. The layers look fab, what a great layout and love the pretty pink roses :) xx

Paula (PEP) said...

Delightful the way your pearl pin picks up the polka dots of the ribbon. Your intricate white swirls pick up the shapes of the lacey oval edges beautifully too. I like the way the twine helps to draw the eye to the muslin material too - think it must be the pattern & texture that does it in my brain!!
