Think Pink Challenge

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all my fellow Canadians, hope you are enjoying your long weekend. My mother-in-law has been in the hospital since the end of August, so my free time has been taken up with visiting her every day and I haven't spent much time in my craft room. I wanted to take part in Flourishes 'Think Pink' challenge so I put together this card yesterday. I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch #261 and got my colour inspiration from Color Q challenge #157.

For my background I used the Faux Letterpress technique. I brayered ink onto one side of an embossing folder before embossing my cardstock. I believe you can also apply the ink directly to the folder with your ink pad.

Supplies - Standard A2 size
Paper - Pink CS (SU), Black CS (Bazzill), White Daisy CS (CTMH)
Stamp - Magnolias (Flourishes)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Cotton Candy (CTMH)
Accessories - Striped ribbon, Grey Rosettes, Bitty Sparkles (CTMH), 1/2" black seam binding (May Arts), Pink rose, Rhinestone flourish (Prima)
Other - Exquisite Circles, Std. Circles Sm (Spellbinders), Embossing folder (Provocraft), Brayer, 3D foam
