Pretty in pink at VSC

Good morning, can you believe its July 1st already? Isn't this year flying, or maybe I'm just getting old lol. Well as its a new month, we've got a new challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges and the theme this month is 'Pretty in Pink'. There's a voucher up for grabs from our regular sponsor Flonzcraft so I hope you're going to join us.

I've used one of the lovely Manga images from Flonzcraft for my card. I've used a scrap of bp from my stash to cover a shaped card blank, distressed it with a craft knife and done a bit of embossing around the edges. I've layered the image up over some cheesecloth and popped in a little vintage image (part of the packing from an order at The Funkie Junkie). The ribbon flower is also from the Funkie Junkie. To finish off i've added some little pearls, a seam binding bow and a button tied with a little twine.
I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
As you like it: 3 favourite embellies and why
My 3 are ribbon, flowers and pearls because they always look pretty and feminine)
Crafty Catz: Say it with flowers
Joanna Sheen Challenge: don't be square
Wags'n'Whiskers: cute as a button

I'd better go and get the bus to work. It seems a shame to be stuck inside on a lovely morning like this but needs must I suppose. Have a lovely day and thanks for popping by

  1. Yes it does indeed seem to be flying by this year Claire, the lack of whether hasn't helped either.

    You done a beautiful job with the Flonz manga image and I love all the tactile elements you've added.
