Pretty in Pink!

Here is my entry for challenge 15 over at Bah Humbug "Pretty in Pink". Last one part the post I daresay. I actually made the card whilst staying up in Scotland with Janet, so please forgive me for being vague about the origins of the materials I used. I must say I found this one really challenging!
I think the stamp is from Kanban. I have stamped the main image with versa mark and black detail EP. Then I have highlighted the branches with a green marker and then used cystal stickles. This has been cut with an oval nestie. The edges have been distressed with a pink inkpad, the matt has been distressed with a slightly darker ink from Stampin Up. The background has been cut using a big nestie, and I have used the same tree with second degree stamping in black, with the same branches of the same tree stamped in pink to create swirls. I have edged this mat by dragging the SU pink inkpad around the edges. Card is finished with a pink grossgrain ribbon and flowers and leaves using Martha Steward punches. The flowers have been finished with crystal stickles applied with my finger and a pink gem. The backing paper is grey ribbed.
Thank for looking


  1. Fits the challenge perfectly! A very pretty card and very pink! The grey base card really sets the card off and the flowers are lovely.

    Thanks for crafting with me.

  4. Hi Wanda, your card looks even prettier in close up - love how you have added the random pink swirls using just the branches part of the stamp and you have added just enough sparkle to the tree. Thank you for joining us at Bah! Humbug! this week and I hope you will visit again soon.
