Pretty in Pink ...

Hi Everybody,

For this card I have used one of the newer colours from the Distress Inks range and the is Picked Raspberry.

It is very bright ... so test it on a piece of spare card before you go ahead and add it to your project ... then you will know what to expect.

Because of the deep colour I kept my  base card to white and made  it  following the  Filigree Hinged Card   tutorial  using  the
 5 x 7 Enchanted Labels 28

I used the stamp that matches Labels 28 to stamp my design and added it to the card with foam tape.

The sentiment is stamped in silver and heat embossed and is from JustRite Stampers

Floral Ovals has been cut twice and the outer edge of one  ... via the perforations ... has been removed and  layered on top of the full piece.   The mannequin has been added alongside.

The pearls from Want2Scrap  and the beautiful checkered ribbon from Reasonable Ribbon  completes the card

Yesterday I offered you the chance to win some Grand Decorative Ovals from Spellbinders ... along with a few other goodies.

Add your name to the list for the ...    July Give Away  ...   and the problem from yesterday is now fixed and so if you don't have a Blog then just leave the URL box blank. 

Add your name once please as duplicates will be removed and it would be nice if you left me a comment too.   Please join the list of followers and then come back regularly to visit the Blog.

This prize was offered earlier this year and the winner .... unbelievably never came back to claim it ...  and so you now have another chance  to get these dies for yourself.

The draw will be done at random by InLink  on the 31st which is a Wednesday and you will  have until Sunday the 4th August in which to claim your prize ....  and then it will go to someone else if it is not claimed.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
