Pink Lady

Why Pink Lady? I happened to love this yummy summer cocktail. It's gin-based and gets its gorgeous luscious colour from grenadine.

Good evening, my crafty friends. My Monday is almost over and here I am with my MojoMonday offering - a birthday card which I'll add to my tiny stash of similar cards. When I say tiny, I really do mean tiny as the so-called stash is all of 3! Here is the latest addition:

The patterned papers are from Papermania's Parkstone Pink 6x6 pad. Embellishments include lace, pearls, ribbon, twine - all in pink and white. I've 2 Spellbinder dies Deckled Rectangle and Ribbon Tag. The greeting is by WMS stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.

The focal image is from Chocolate Baroque's "Indian Textiles" set, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Promarkers. ( Pink Carnation, Rose Pink, Dusky Rose, Pale Pink, Pear Green and Lime Zest)  

I decided to keep the inside empty...fro now.

Some challenges for this card:
MojoMonday #303 - sketch
The Ribbon Reel Challenge #58 "Rose Cottage" - photo inspiration: white, pink flowers, ribbon & lace
Whoopsi Daisy "Use 2 Or More Die-cuts"
Through The Purple Haze "Flowers"
Craft Your Passion #172 "Happy Birthday"
Paper Playtime #15 "Pattern Paper"
Eureka Stamps #49 "Happy Birthday"
