FTTC36 Pink Gerbera Daisies

Today's card is for the Flourishes FTTC36 Think Pink challenge to make a card for a woman in your life using pink. I LOVE these gerberas and decided to use them and not add a sentiment so it can be one of those 'just because' sort of cards. :)

I started with a white base, layered with pink bazzill (pierced) and another layer of white - the top half embossed with the Damask Frame EF. The horizontal strip is more pink bazzill punched with the Martha Stewart Arch Lattice border punch. I then wrapped some 1" white satin ribbon around it and added a white bow made with my bow easy. The frame around the Gerberas was made with a piece of pink bazzill cut with the large scallop oval nestabilities and then the middle cut out with the classic oval nestabilities so that the embossing shows through. The Gerbera Daisies were stamped in Tuxedo Memento Black and coloured with markers and a blender pen, cut out with scissors and a scalpel and popped up over the frame. I finished off with a corner from the Vintage die set and added a single Kaisercraft Snow Pearl to the centre.
