Pink Wings

Hi Folks,

I have been struggling to find time all week to make this card for In the Pink, where the 2nd challenge  is 'Pink - Things with Wings'  and as I was a 'Perfect Pinky' in their first challenge,  it wouldn't be nice not to enter and I am there by the skin of my teeth - nothing new these days!

My main image is from Lost Coast, stamped in Victorian Velvet, matted and then again onto some Co'ordination's which was embossed with the CB Script. The butterfly was stamped onto copy paper, and then onto vellum, and brushed with Perfect Pearls,so it is 3d  and quite sparkly, although its hard to tell. I made my background paper, which started off a very pale pink, by stamping the butterfly, masking it, and then repeatedly stamping Hero Arts French Writing., then distressed with Tattered Rose arond the edges.  The sentiment is Inkylicious, which I think fits this Dreaming Lady.

I am also entering this in:
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes
  City Crafters Challenge - Monochromatic
  Crafty Cardmakers - Things with Wings

That's it for now, and thanks for looking.
