Pretty in Pink

Happy Friday everyone! This is my second post of the day. Trying to play catch up. So please scroll down if you would like to see my first post! My card is for the new challenge over at Bloggers Challenge. This week, we are to create a project with a Birthday theme. My oldest daughter's birthday is next week, so this is perfect timing! I began with a vintage pink card base, added springtime designer paper from the Shades of Summer pad by Crafty Individuals that was wrapped with white lace and re-purposed lavender ribbon. A paper doily grounds the focal image, which is from a Miniatures Book by Crafty Individuals. The sentiment by Hero arts is stamped in Black StazOn ink and outlined with Stickles for a bit of sparkle. Embellishments include a rose pink applique, pearls, a teapot charm and a simple piece of rose seam binding tied into a small bow. The girl above resembles my daughter growing up. She has grown into such a beautiful woman, inside and out. What a precious blessing she is to all of us. Enjoy your weekend. Best wishes, Yvonne
