Pretty in pink inspiration at VSC

Good morning, well as good as it can be for a Monday when work is beckoning me, yuk!! Today's card is an inspiration project for our 'Pretty in Pink" Challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges. There are still a few days left to enter and be in with a chance to win a fab prize from our sponsor Flonzcraft. You don't have to create a vintage project to enter but we do want to see some rubber stamping :-)

I've used a distress ink background, made with cream cardstock and overstamped with an Indigo Blu honeycomb stamp. The image is from Flonzcraft, coloured with Graph'It Markers and die cut with nesties. I've used kraft card to mat and layer and I've added some seam binding, a paper rose from Wild Orchid Crafts and some gorgeous lace from the Ribbon Girl. To finish off I've popped some faux pearls in three of the corners and a filigree corner at the the top. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Allsorts: kraft it
Alphabet: L is for lace
One Stop Craft: ribbon or flowers
Penny Black and More: dies and punches
That Craft Place: its a girl thing

Its quite a bit cooler here now, hopefully I won't be half asleep all week this week. All that heat and lovely sunshine turned me into a bit of a zombie lol. thanks so much for popping by
