In the Pink - Plus One!

Hi Folks,

The challenge over at In the Pink this fortnight is 'Pink plus 1 other' .  So perfect for these images, which had fallen into the basket at checkout when I ordered another stamp online - its very hard to keep the basket empty when I hate to pay for postage - and if I didn't pay postage, then that left more to spend at Harrogate, so needs must I say!

Anyhow, the stamps are Graphic 45 Ladies Diary,  apart from the floral  background, which is Stamapendous.
To comply with the 'Rules' the main images were stamped in black and distressed with Tattered Rose DI, Flowers coloured with Worn Lipstick (I didn't even use green for the leaves but it looks OK) Skin again Tattered Rose. The background was stamped with Victorian Velvet, along with the border onto pale pink cardstock, and all matted onto black.  The roses TH Tattered Floral die, and no green leaves, so a black swirl.

I am also entering this at:
  Dream Valley - Go Pink!
  The Crafty Pad - Vintage
  Drunken Stampers - Think Pink
  Art Impressions - Pink

That's it for now and thanks for looking.

Loving the card, The image is Superb. The black is a perfect choice with the pink, goes great with having the text panel.

Hi Avril
I agree, why pay for postage when you don't have too!!! They are gorgeous stamps too. It all makes a very pretty feminine card.
I'm sorry we didn't bump into each other on Saturday. We seem to have missed out a few stalls too. I think having DD took all my attention this time, didn't want to lose her!!
We must make definite arrangements next time but glad you enjoyed it.
Hugs Liasx
