A Little Shimmer

Hi all. Hope you have enjoyed a lovely weekend. It's been quite dark here all day.  No matter how I tried I just couldn't get a good photo without the flash cutting in on my camera, and I prefer natural light.  Anyhow, here is my card for today...
My image is from the Flourishes - 'With Gratitude' set of stamps. I coloured my flowers with ProMarkers and then chalked over them with lavender shimmer chalk.  I used my new set of Spellbinders decorative labels eight, then cut them down to fit my image by cutting across the centres and carefully joining them back together.  I managed to cover the join with my ribbon.

I hope my card is pink enough to enter the challenge at In the Pink Challenge #3 which is anything but square.
Thanks for stopping by
