In The Pink

Hello, my lovely blogging friends. Hope you're all well.
First of all...I would like to welcome my new followers:)
I haven't blogged for a week, although I have been visiting your blogs and checking out what you've been up to.
I lost a bit of my inspiration to craft, but thought it was time to pull my finger out and get on with it. So, today I have a card for a few challenges...

I cut my white base card on Cameo, and went around the edges with a pricking tool. Then, after embossing and distressing, I layered some Coredinations in spun sugar. On top of that the largest Spellbinder picot edge circle, to which I attached some pink heart trim, (from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop). I then added the final layer, which is a Spellbinder standard circle. The sentiment is one I've had for years, and I think it may be  Stampendous.  I stamped in silver pigment ink by ColorBox and applied Moon Glow Stardust Candy Rose embossing powder.  I hand crafted my rose, inked at the centre to give some shading and depth of colour. My bow is made with 16mm pink sheer ruffle edge ribbon from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges...

The Pink Elephant - Use Pink
Card Caravan Challenge - Use Ribbon
 CES Challenges - Lots of  Layers
Allsorts Challenge - Free and Easy February
2 Sisters Challenge Blog - I Heart You
One Stop Craft Challenge - Hearts and Flowers with Ribbon

Have a Great Day!

What a gorgeous creation Sasha! I love the pink and delicate colours, and the pretty picot edge die - another set you have now encouraged me to buy! Beautiful bow, and lovely sentiment, and as for that beautiful rose, it's a stunner!
Internet acces is patchy here, so I'm looking forward to having a good hop around blogland on Sunday. We return to uk tomorrow night, and pick the kids up Saturday, I'm really missing them now, and need their cuddles! Hope you are well xxx
