Pink Pearly and Swirly

Hello and a happy Sunday to you all!
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

It's the first Sunday of the month, and that means time for a new challenge for you over at Penny Black and More. This month we'd like to see something

Pink Pearly and Swirly!

Here is what I created.

My stamp is from Penny Black, of course, it's called Cuddle and Hobble. I don't know if it's retired or not, but Icouldn't find it in Penny Black's listings.  After coloring the image I cut it out using my cutterbee scissors. I just love how good those scissors work for cutting out the smallest details. 

The designer paper is from My Minds Eye, it is kind of an antique rose shade, so I colored my image accordingly to match with antique pink and some browns.

On the left side I used the "lavish flourishes" stamp again from Whimsy to add a little more to the designer paper. And then I added a little bit of glitter too. The strip of darker pink (which looks more like purple in my photo) is also from the same paper pack.
The dark color and card base are Stampin Up's chocolate chip.

The tickets are from the set" Everyday Mini Postage Stamps" from whimsy stamps. I used the mini postage stamp die to cut it out.

Not much more to tell about my card I guess. I've embellished with a button and some white twine, some white grosgrain ribbon, and pearls. Stitching to finish it off before adhering it onto the card base.

I would also love to enter this to a few other challenges:

Hope you'll find some time this month to join us. We have some fantastic prizes up for grabs again from Penny Black, Stampalot, Crafts U Love, and Flonz. No need to use a PB stamp either, you may use any rubber or clear stamps or stickeroos. And as usual, we are looking for guest designers for the following months, so be sure to read on the challenge blog on how you can be chosen as a guest.
