Think Pink!

I've managed to cram loads of challenges on this card...makes up for yesterday's lack of challenges ;0)
I used: the Midnight Madness sketch; the Charisma Cardz Challenge theme of 'Flower Power'; the 'Pearls & Swirls' theme of the Cupcake Craft Challenge; the Papertake Weekly challenge to 'Fake It'; and...lastly, but by no means least...the 'Think Pink' challenge of Stampavie & More. I used 'Rainin' Daisies' (by Penny Black), and some gorgeous flowery paper by My Mind's Eye ('29th Street Market')...the pink is the reverse, which I embossed with my 'D'Vine Swirls' folder, then sanded to reveal the white core. The flowers are all from Poppicrafts, and the pearl brads are by Papermania. I added some adhesive pearls to some of the swirls, and some faux-stitching around the edges of the papers for my 'fake' elements.


  1. That's pink! Another gorgeous card Helen - I love your distressing effect (mine look traumatised rather than distressed) and Raining Daisies is such a wonderful stamp. Brilliant!
