sweet sunday sketch #33

Happy Monday!!!!... well it's nearly Tuesday here.... and I've got my Sweet Sunday Sketch card up before the deadline.... I know... AMAZING!!! Perhaps it was the ironing pile that gave me the inspiration.... NOT!!!! hahaha

Anyway... Karen has set yet another gorgeous sketch for us to work with this week, and here is my card:-

Oh before I show you I must warn you... there is a considerable amount of PINK!!!! I haven't been using my beloved colour much lately... not sure why, so I figured it was time to bring it back!!!! LOL

Here is Karen's lovely sketch

I used Pink Pirouette as the base then added a layer of Regal Rose and some DSP from the Candy Lane pack... (LOVE THIS pack!!) I also added some Regal Rose ribbon (DELISH!!). Now for the circles.... you don't even want to know how long I sat at my desk picking up random circle shaped objects to try and find different sizes... I really must get a circle cutter!!!!. Anyway.. the larger circle is Pink Pirouette, and the smaller one Regal rose. I've stamped the Regal Rose circle with my Fifth Ave Floral rose in Regal Rose just to create a background. Then, I stamped my Rose stamp onto some Watercolour paper in VersaMark and embossed it with White embossing powder before I coloured it in Pink Pirouette and Regal Rose using my Aqua Painter.. I added a little Regal Rose bow with some bling attached and a couple of little pink gems to the top.

Hope you like, and don't forget to have a looksie over at Karen's and have a go at her SSSC... they're so much fun!!!

Thanks for stopping by.

LOOOOVE the pink! The more pink, the merrier! How does your hubby feel about all the pink in your house? Hmmm... maybe time to add a little blue?? Heehee!

Another lovely card! I am going to regionals (booked ticket at 8:45 am on 1st, a bit keen) but I live in Newcastle, NSW so will be going to the one in Sydney. Wouldn't mind going to Perth, I love it. My brother lived in Bunbury for about 7 years & I was in Perth for 3 months in 1999, with a Christian organisation called Youth With a Mission. i was in Hay St. I loved the CAT system, wish Sydney had that.

Thanks for lovely comment,
Cheers, Fi xox
