Pretty In Pinks

Good Afternoon.  We have been having some gorgeous weather here in the Northeast, I couldn't have ordered better days!  Just heavenly!

Today's card I have entered into 2 Challenges; CMC # 74, Pretty In Pink, and  for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge # 190. 

And here is my entry:     

 I rotated the sketch to accommodate this beautiful stamp from Flourishes, Anemones.  I have used them before, just recently, but I really love the flower image and how they color up so easily.   This card is for my Aunt who lives in Illinois, a dear and great friend to my Mom.....her Casino Partner.  Oh the trouble those 2 can get into!  I probably don't even know half of it.....and that's probably for the best!
I used a Fiskars border punch on the right hand side.  Corner punched the pink and white matted card stock.  Added lots of pink rhinestones to the edge and each flower center.  I also used pink striped, pink dotted, and solid pink Washi Tape on the "banners".  Added a bit of pink ribbon to tie the bouquet together.  Colored with Copic Markers.  The small flowers on the top right were punched with an inexpensive paper punch, layered in pink and white.  A very simple card that hopefully packs a punch!
Thanks for stopping by on this fabulous August week from the month is gone!  C'mon Fall!  (don't you groan Judy Woodland!)  :)
