In the pink

I don't know
I think pink is getting to me!

Yesterday it took me all day to do a Christmas card
A holiday card I usually have no problem making!

Today I decided to do the Shabby Tea Room Challenge 
Oh-So pretty in Pink 
and it only took a couple of hours 

And again,
 I have to say, 
I am not a pink kinda girl but I love it!

I chose to do an easel card today.

Here it is...

and the inspiration image...

Not just pretty but yummy looking too!


I distressed the edges of all my images and the ooh la la tag with my Tim Holtz distresser.

The polka dot background is from my scrap stash.

The striped piece is from Gecko Galz Versailles paper pack.
Also from Gecko Galz are the 4 center images,
all of them are from the Viva la France collage set. 

If you haven't been to Gecko Galz lately, you must go!
There are so many images collage sheets, paper packs, stamps and MORE to chose from so
 pop on over and take a peek!


I added the fan to my ooh la la tag for the inside of the card then cut it with my Cameo.
I stamped the ooh la la with a stamp I found a couple of years ago,
it was in the $1 bin at either Michaels or AC Moore.

And speaking of Michaels, the two open roses are from Recollections at Michaels.

The rose buds (hip buds) are from Wild Orchids Crafts.

*** edit***
I used my spun sugar distress marker on the edges of all the flowers then sprayed them with dazzling diamonds glimmer mist.

The leaves are from I am roses.

The pink bling mesh is from Pro31 Design.

Here is a close up of the center of the card...

All four of the Gecko Galz Viva la France images here are tinted pink...
not by choice.
My printer is running out of ink and tinted them for me.
Couldn't be any more perfect for a pink challenge don't you think?
