This is the card that resulted for both challenges. It needed to be a "girly" thank you card for The Paper Players challenge, and it needed to follow the design for the sketch challenge. I used SU Pretty in Pink card stock for the base, a light pink for layer 1 and white for all the other layers. The lacey edges were made from a new die that I recently purchased, cut down the center and glued to the back of the white card stock. The image is from an old stamp set from Stampin' Up called "Summer By The Sea" which was colored with Prisma colored pencils. I used heart shaped enamel dots for the ribbon (layers 5 and 6) because of the small space available. As I was assembling the card, there was not enough contrast between the pinks so I sponged "worn lipstick" distress ink around the edges of the card base. I love the resulting color.
I wish everyone a safe and fun "Memorial Day Weekend".
