Pretty in Pink

Hi folks! I had fun making this sweet little card. I made the backing paper by screwing up a sheet of pink paper and spritzing it with cosmic shimmer mists. I printed the patterned paper from Joanna Sheen's new Giordano Puppies and Kittens CDrom straight onto some linen cardstock. I then highlighted the flowers with stickles.

I stamped the image (How are you?) and watercoloured it. I used a Martha Stewart boarder punch on another sheet of pink paper and pleated it before adhering to the top of the painted panel and then topped that with a large ribbon bow. I used my Woodware flower punches of various sizes to create the flower and finished them off with a self adhesive pearl.
I have also been busy sculpting. If you'd like to see more of baby Louisa then hop over to Tia Nena's Nursery for lots more pic's

Ciao for now!

Hi Sandra
Loving the card Old english sheep dogs are adorable. I am really tempted by the Giordano Stamps they are so cute. Nice to see the cd used inconjunction with a stamp as often samples are shown using either one or the other

I love your card Sandra!
The colours are beautiful, this image is totally sweet and your colouring is... just wow!
Love the panels, it's a really great idea!

And this feet looks sooo sweet, I have to hop over ;O).



Beautiful card Sandra - love the image and the colour scheme. The spritzed/scrunched backing paper looks fabulous - I really should try to create some of my own papers as I spend hours searching my paper stash for a perfect colour match!
Hugs, Sylvia xxx

Love this one Sandra. The layers are fab and the pleating adds such dimension. Your colouring is perfect as always.
A real beauty of a card.

I had to smile at your gorgeous image on this card, Sandra. That big heap of hair reminds of the dog we used to have years ago except he was brown and white, but he looked just like this one. That scrunched background is beautiful. I must have a play with my mists again.
I'm popping over for a closer look at your baby now.
Hugs Lisax
