Pretty In Pink

This card was made with the last of my Delilah patterned paper.  I struggled forever trying to find the perfect ribbon for this card and finally went with this pretty pink designer ribbon.  My card base is Pinecone layered with a 3 x 4 piece of Delilah Stripe and 2 1/4 x 4 strip of Pretty In Pink embossed with the Cuttle Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. To cover the seam I used a 1 inch strip of Yam cardstock.

The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White using the Natural Beauty stamp set and colored in using Copic Markers.  I paper pierced the edges around the image then cut the paper in to a 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 tag and layered it on to a slightly larger piece of Pinecone before attaching it to the card base using mounting tape. To embellish the card I added the pretty bow and a couple pink buttons threaded with DMC White.

Thanks for stopping by!
