Love in Pink

Hi All!

Hope you're having a good week. I've been busy cleaning up the house and taking care of some business, but today I decided to take a break to make a card. We had our new Carousel Horse release on Sunday at Whimsy Stamps and so I was just itching to use the other stamp set to make a card.

I started this card by inking up this new Untamed Love image by Crissy Armstrong. It's she beautiful! I love her! I've colored with copics and highlighted with a bit of white gel pen accents. Then for the card, I used some pink and brown card stock with a piece of BasicGrey paper. I distressed the edge of the paper and added some faux stitching to the brown layers. The circle frame was cut with circle Nestabilities and then I embossed with the swirls folder and sprayed it with glimmer mist. I finished off with some ribbon and sticky pearl accents.

This card fits the challenges at:
Cute Daisy May: Love
A Spoon Full of Sugar: use heart (the image has hearts)
Creative Card Crew: Distressing
Everybody Art Challenge: Favorite Color Combo (this is just one of many)

Thanks for dropping by today...back to work I go! Have a super afternoon! Happy stamping! :)
