In the Pink...

Happy Thursday,

I had a fab coupe of days with Aunty Glo and the ladies of allbrights can't wait to go back again!

Today's card is again using up pieces leftover form demos on Hochanda I really do love coming hime form a demo day or workshop and using the pieces i have made!

The large ribbon threaded circle is, of course, form my ribbon threader die set I simply cut this in white and threaded the Crafts Too stitch grosgrain ribbon through this adding a bow at the base.  I matted this onto a rosa lustre print card mat cut with the Press Cut plain circles which fit perfectly.

The background is form a show early in February made using the fabulous Nellie Snellen layering stamps where you get 4 individual stamps that make the stunning corner when you ink and stamp them in different colours!

I added the centre piece to a plane of embossed rosa card with layers of white pink and green to finish.
