Pals Paper Art 48

This week at Pals Paper Art they are having a sketch challenge.

This looked like a good sketch to do a monochromatic card, and I did it all in different shades of pinks.

Stamps: Fast and Fabulous (a level I hostess gift in the new 2010-2011 catalog)
Cardstock: Rose Red, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink
Embellishments: Rhinestone Brads
Accessories: Lattice Square Embossing Folder, Glue Dots, SNAIL and Stamping Sponges

The card base is Rose Red and then I cut the Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette and Regal Rose cardstock and layered them on the Rose Red.
I then embossed the front half of the card.
The edges of the Whisper White are sponged with Rose Red ink.
The Rhinestone brad was an afterthought, so rather than take the Whisper White off, I cut the prongs off of the Rhinestone Brad and used a glue dot to place it on the Whisper White.
I hope you enjoy the card today, and maybe even find a little inspiration in it.
