Pink Dreams


Welcome

I had fun with this card - starting with the watercolour panel


The sentiment was embossed in white before the panel was trimmed, the corners punched, and it was mounted over a piece of black sparkle card.


The bling swirl was added, and then some butterflies punched from the black sparkle card.


After mounting on the pink card base, A ribbon was added to the left of the card, and a bow folded onto it.


The final touch was some bling on the ribbon.
