Pretty in Pink

Hello Everyone!  Today is my sister-in-law's birthday so I've made her a pretty, girly card in her favourite colours - pink and green.  I hope she likes it!  :)  I've used this week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch for the layout.

I started with a base of pink bazzill and layered with paler pink and then some Memory Box Gossamer DP.  Across the bottom third I've added another layer of pink that has been punched with the MS Deco Fan punch and topped with some May Arts White Satin Ribbon.  In the middle I've added some pale pink that has been cut with the Label 13 Nestabilities.  The roses are from Flourishes' A Year of Flowers 2 set and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (G20, G21, G24, G28, RV000, RV32, RV34).  They've been cut out with Large Circle Nestabilities and matted with green bazzill cut with Large Scallop Circle Nestabilities and then popped up on foam tape.  To finish I added a few Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the corners.

Stamps - A Year of Flowers 2 (Flourishes)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Pink Bazzill, Pale Pink Bazzill, Green Bazzill, Memory Box Gossamer DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Label 13, Large Circle, Large Scallop Circle Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Deco Fan Punch, May Arts White Satin Ribbon, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
