Pink and Lacey

This is a card I made for my Grandmother's birthday. I took the SCS technique challenge and made a pink sparkly card. The stamp is Papertrey Flower Garden. I stamped the flower in Sweet Blush and the stem in Ripe Avocado. I then used Shimmerz Angel Wings paint to color over the flower and stem and Beeswax to color the flower center. The sentiment is from Papertrey Birthday Basics.

As a side note, you can enter to win Shimmerz blog candy here. I am just totally in love with this stuff. It is so easy to use, fast drying and really adds a nice shimmer to anything you use it on. I have a very difficult time taking pictures that showcase that shimmer, however; it is stunning in real life.

Back to the card, the paper is from sugared 6 x6 paper pad by Basic Grey. The card base is Papertrey Ripe Avocado. I distressed the edges of the mat and sponged them with the Versamagic Pink Petunia inkpad. The border punch I used is Martha Stewart doily, and the flowers are silk flowers. I love to buy silk flowers and pull them apart and use them on my cards. The pearl brad is from Michaels brides wedding collection. The lace is from Offray.

I have added the followers gadget to my left sidebar. This is such a great tool. It lets you read a blog right from your Blogger dashboard. I would be honored if you chose to become a follower.

Have a blessed day!

Very pretty card. I like the touch of lace. I understand what you mean about photographing shimmery things, I can never capture that either.
