Pretty In Pink

Hi all!  I'm so excited to have made it to Round Three of the Practical Scrappers Card Contest.  I would be greatful for your vote!  To vote for my card all you have to do is visit this link and add a comment on which card you wish to vote for.  This contest has been great for me, really pushing my creativity each week.  Now for my card...I wanted to enter it in a few challenges:

First up is the Ribbon Reel Challenge 13 - Pretty Pastel Florals:


Isn't this a lovely picture?  Makes me want to drink tea and I don't even like the stuff, haha!  I'm also entering it in these challenges:

Jellypark Challenges - add pink and a ribbon
Raise The Bar #79 - Pink

Here's my card:


I made my card as shabby as possible!  The requirements for this card were to use a banner/flag and add the word "happy" to the sentiment.  My paper is The Girls Paperie - I could wallpaper my house in this stuff!  My cardstock, stamps, twine and ink are Papertrey Ink.  My lace is Crate Paper and seam binding is from Etsy.  The stamp set I used is "Love Lives Here" inspired by Melissa Phillips.  My banner is actually the roofs of the little houses in the set and the die cuts.  My pearls are Creative Charms.  It was fun thinking outside the box to make the banner! 


I've also got to thank a few challenges this week!  CardPatterns included me in their Sketch 136 Super Six.  And I made the Top 3 at The Ribbon Reel Challenge 12.  Very honored to be a part of their winners circle!

Stop by on Thursday to see this month's sketch challenge from The Sampler and my layout!  Have a great week!
