Pastel Pink Birthday Card

{click to enlarge for detail}

I made (and sent) this birthday card to someone who loves the color pink. I stamped the floral and leaf images from a Hero Arts stamp set with versamark all over a white card panel, then embossed them all with white ep. I also used a stick stamp to do all the tiny spatters between those images. I sponged everything with spun sugar distress ink for a real feminine and soft pastel look. I stamped the sentiment on black with Versamark, heat embossed that with white ep, and die cut it with a stitched circle die. Next I tied some pink satin ribbon around the card before matting it with black and placing it on a white card base. I added 3 pink gemstones for a little sparkle.

I'm entering this into the following challenges :

Thanks for stopping by and we pray for everyone's safety as the southern US braces for hurricane Irma. These massive storms are almost unimaginable to endure and I hope those who live in her path are able to safely evacuate before she makes landfall.

You always make the prettiest cards, Carol! Love the color combo on this one! Very striking in black, white & pink! Your embossing really stands out nicely in this and I love that you left it do all the talking so to speak! I bet the person who loves pink, loved this card! TFS and Happy Friday to you!
