Pink Sweet Peas!!!

Here is another card for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Anniversary Challenge!!!  This one is hosted by Silke who has challenged us to make a card using PINK as your main colour!!!!  I love pink so I loved this challenge and what could be prettier than Pink Sweet Peas!!!  :)  If you want to play along, link your creation to Mr Linky on the Flourishes Blog and if you upload to SCS use the keyword FTTC52D!

I started with a base of white and layered with pink bazzill and more white embossed along the top with the new Jamara EF.  Across the bottom I've added two rows of piercing.  Next I added a piece of Kaisercraft Christmas Carnival DSP cut using the Label 8 Nestabilities.  I stamped the image from Sweet Peas in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with markers.  I then cut it out with Small Oval Nestabilities and matted it with pink cut with Large Oval Nestabilities and then the white scalloped oval cut with Large Scalloped Nestabilities.  Across the bottom of the card I added some pink ric rac and a Fancy Tag that has been sponged with Pretty in Pink and stamped with the sentiment from Sweet Peas.  To finish I added some Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the corners of the Label 8 die cut.

Paper - Pink Bazzill, White, Kaisercraft Christmas Carnival DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Pretty in Pink
Accessories - Label 8 Nestabilities, Fancy Tags, Pink Ric Rac, Small, Large and Large Scalloped Oval Nestabilities, Jamara EF, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Dauber, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls, Foam Tape.

How many have you got on here, Kathy??!! I think this is one of my favorite images by Flourishes. Just love sweet peas and you have done a bang up job colouring them. Great nestie layering and the pearls in the corners of the panel are fabulous. Lovely sentiment panel and ribbon too.
