Pretty in Pink

Good morning. Well what a damp miserable start to the day it is here in Gloucestershire. John & I had planned our weekend 4 mile walk later so unless it brightens up I guess we will not be doing that - so I wonder what else I could do instead lol!!!
Today I would like to share a card I made yesterday that I really enjoyed making (not that I don't enjoy making all the cards I make but somehow I enjoyed making this one even more!) 

I started by inking a piece of cardstock with Spun Sugar & Dusty Concorde Distress Inks and then spritzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist before stamping Penny Black Letter Background 1999L with Dusty Concorde to make the background.
Then I stamped Penny Black Firework 3948K 3 times along a smaller square piece of cardstock and clear embossed before adding some Spun Sugar Distress Ink to the edges.
This also used:
Martha Stewart Doily border punch
Crushed Silk Ribbon
Grosgain Ribbon
Bakers Twine
Button & Heart Gem
Sentiment - Papermania 

Challenges that inspired me for this card are:
Penny Black Staurday Challenge - Pretty in Pink 
Clean & Simple - Sketch
Secret Crafter - Stamped Flowers
Daring Cardmakers - Recipe (2 ribbon, twine, trim 1 or more buttons, at least 1 heart element) They have a fab prize up for grabs this week from their sponsor The Ribbon Reel

Hope you like it.
Thanks for popping over.
Have a fabulous day.
