Guest Designer!

I was very fortunate to have been asked to do a guest DT spot over at Stamping Sensations.
Their challenge this month is a subject which is close to my heart as it's 'PRETTY IN PINK'!
So here is my contribution -

The papers are from Raspberry Road called 'Antelbellum'. I did some random stamping in Vintage Sepia ink using a flourish stamp from a Stempelglede set and then attacked the edges! (Normal people call this 'distressing - LOL)

I used another stamp from the same set to make the 'postcard'

Used Victorian Velvet DI on all the edges then stitched the layers together.
The vintage lace  stitched across then the main image matted onto plain pale pink card added. This lovely delicate vintage image is a freebie from a fab Dutch site called JanetK which I printed onto linen textured paper.

A die cut heart with a little pearl button, a stamped tag and some hand dyed ribbon for the bow. 
Inside co-ordinated to match.
So there it is! Thanks for looking and hope you can join in the challenge this month!
Other Challenges -
Alphabet - Buttons and Bows
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes

Am feeling better than I was earlier in the week so can only hope that now I have turned the corner and am over the worst! Fingers (and everything else) crossed!! Thanks for looking and if you've had the time to leave me a comment I appreciate it!
I have a free day today (3 orders to finish) so will pop round to see you all later. x

Pleased to hear you are on the mend Viv, yesterday will have cheered you - as you always say YNWA.

Your take on the theme is beautiful, such soft pinks and with a lovely shabby chic feel as well.
