50 Shades of ............Pink!

Hi Folks,

Yes. that's the title of the first  challenge at 'In the Pink' . This is a new Challenge blog co-hosted by 2 lovely,  and very talented ladies -  Sylvia and Christine.  If by any chance you don't know these ladies, please  pop over to their blogs, you won't be disappointed

For my card, I used Ella Bella from IndigoBlu, stamped in black on white cardstock,, edges were distressed with Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet DI,  The swirl is IndigoBlu, the sentiment is Tim Holtz and all stamping was  in VV.   I added lots of Glamour Dust to the swirls, butterflies and torn edges. The base and embossed layers were pale pink cardstock, and although its not 50 shades of pink - I think it qualifies!

I am also entering this in:
  Loves to Create - Sparkle
  Gingerloft - Silhouettes
  That Craft Place - Things with Wings
  Sweet Stampin - Things with Wings

Thats it for today - 4 posts this week - I'm like a bus - don't see one for ages and then they all come together!

WOW this is so stunning Avril. I love the simplicity of it yet there are so many elegant swirls on your layers. Gorgeous.
