Magnolia Highlites - Pretty in Pink

I am submitting this card for the Magnolia-licious Pretty in Pink Challenge and Blog Hop.

Stamps: Tilda with Dalecarlia Biggin, Park/Pond
Paper: Always Artichoke, Simiplicity (that I got from Embellish-It)
Ink: Memento, Copics
Embellishments Lace, Prima Flowers, Transparency, Sizzix die cut


In this picture, you can see the shine from the transparency a little better. I used a texture plate and dry embossed the transparency. It is easier to see this effect in person.


I sewed lace on the inside of the frame with the transparency to give it more of a window effect.

I used a die cut and Prima's flowers down the side and across the top of the card.

So, there is not really a great place for a sentiment, but you could do something fun around the edge (an after thought).

If you haven't already, check out the blog hop at Magnolia-licious Highlites. I hope you have a great week.
