I always seem to be using a shade of pink when using this stamp - Fluffy Passenger by Penny Black. Here I created a watercolor wash background by inking a craft mat with Spun Sugar distress ink, spritzed with water then patted my bristol vellum paper onto the ink to create the background. Normally I'd add a second color (once the first color dried) but for our pretty in pink challenge I decided to keep it pink only. I stamped the image using my Tonic stamp platform and Versafine Clair Nocturne ink, and I also used an old Stampin Up background stamp French Script, to add a border of french words.

The sentiment is from a long retired floral stamp set from Whimsy Stamps (I'm sorry but I don't remember the name of this stamp set), stamped with Versafine Clair ink on white card stock. I stapled it onto the card front then tied a pink gingham ribbon (Similar) to it. The ribbon looks reddish in the photo, but is a pretty pink in real life. A couple of sticky rhinestones were added to the centers of the wheels to finish it off.
