Just Add Pink and Bling

Hi guys,

This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink is all about Pink Ribbon day on 25th October. The challenge is to Just Add Pink and Bling. If ever there was a challenge for me to slip up on, this would be it. I'm not what u would consider a girly girl and pink usually isn't my thing. Since I've joined Stampin Up and also since the birth of my daughter I have been embracing Pink more and more and I must say I am quiet happy with what I came up with!

A family friend is getting married today (Huge congrats to Brodie and Liz) and so I thought I'd use this challenge to make them a wedding card. Here it is...

I apologise for the photo. I must have taken 50 photo's of the card and couldn't get anything I was satisfied with. Any suggestions are welcomed!

I embossed the heart from Always in black embossing powder and then coloured in the flowers with my aqua painter and Melon Mambo ink. I then added the new rhinestones (You have to get some they are divine) to the flower centers. Here's a close up for you and also so you can actually see the sentiment.

Stamp Set: Always
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Melon Mambo Prints DSP from Brights DSP Stack
Ink: Basic Black, Versa Mark, Melon Mambo
Accessories: Black satin Ribbon, Sticky Strip, Rhinestones, Hest Tool, Aqua Painter, Black Embossing Powder, Dimensionals

Thanks for looking,

Have a great Sunday

Love the ribbon on this one Dani - I'm not a 'pink' girl either, but I love the combo of pink and black together.
