Pretty in Pink


This post is going to be photo heavy with few words. 
The maintenance on my hand went well, but I am restricted to typing with my left hand :-).

I made the feature panel for this card a few weeks ago, and mounted it up last weekend.

The Faux Letterpress technique panel was sprayed with silver shimmer mist, which I have just managed to capture in the following photo.

A slight ink smudge gave room for creative use of ribbon

A scattering of sequins to finish, and a pretty card was finished.
I did not add a sentiment, but will add an appropriate one when I use the card.

I am linking this to:

Thank you for visiting my blog - may your day be blessed.

Maxine, your card is beautiful, I'd say the smudge was a happy accident as the ribbon and sequins look great. I'm not quite sure if there is any stamping on this card though? Just a reminder to be eligible for the prize at Sweet Stampin', you must have 'hand stamping' or 'digital stamping and colouring' on your card. Thanks for visiting Sweet Stampin and I hope we see you again soon, love Jacky x

The splattering of sequins are quite lovely and the faux letterpress images are really clear. Thank you so much for taking time to post your very creative art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday, on our 192nd Challenge.
Blessings and Hugs, Carole
Hope your hand heals up quickly

I love pink, and the look of the letterpress is so pretty- I have to give it a go! The pink ribbon and sequins are a wonderful accent. Glad your hand is 'coming along' and hope the healing makes it close to new!
