Timeless Tuesday - Let's Play Bingo!

Hi everyone.  Hope you're all doing okay.
Today I have a card for the 'Flourishes' - Timeless Tuesday challenge - Lets Play Bingo!  I love Flourishes stamps, and this is the first time I have entered one of their challenges.  
The stamps I used are from the Cherry Blossoms set of stamps.  I know my choice of colours aren't those of cherry blossoms, but I rather liked the deeper pink and red against so much white.

To colour, I used distress inks...Spun Sugar, Barn Door, Fired Brick, Bundled Sage and Shabby Shutters, which I applied using a water brush. I also dotted some black and white acrylic paint for the stamen.
I completely embossed my base card with So Trendy by Spellbinders M-Bossabilities. My three layers are Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two, and I added a few small white pearls for a bit of bling and to define the corners.  My ribbon is white 25mm sheer elegance from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.

For my bingo I chose a line down...Bling - Die Cut - Emboss

Thank you for stopping by xx

That is such a beautifully elegant card Sasha. I ordered that embossing folder yesterday, with a view to using it on male cards but now I've seen you use it on something so soft and girlie I think I will be using it a lot more! Thanks for the inspiration :-)
