Pretty in Pink

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How is your weekend going? Hubby has been out in the garden, planting and general tidy up whilst I have enjoyed getting back into the craft room, my mojo sure has returned I am so happy to say.

Today's card is made using a Hobby House topper.

Step by Step

1. A5 landscape white card which I have matted and layered pink card distressed with Memento Rose Bud.
2. Second layer is embossed silver pearlescent card which I have wrapped pink organza ribbon around before adhering to base card.
3. The topper I distressed with Rose bud ink and adhered to die cut which I also distressed, I then adhered to base card with foam pads.
4. I made a double bow and added a rose and leaf to the centre.
5. To finish off I added pink gems to the embossed flowers.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
