Pretty in Pink

The challenge at Allsorts #275 is pretty in pink.  I'm also entering it into the following challenges

Whimsy Stamps #75  monochromatic

Papertake Weekly  repeat, repeat

Addicted to Stamps #112 make your mark

Crafty Sentiments Designs  spots and/or stripes

Pretty in pink and monochromatic immediately brought to mind a new baby card

The stamps that I have used are from Fizzy Moon, love their bears.  I stamped it with Memento ink and coloured it using ProMarkers.  I used Spellbinder's Nestabilities to die cut the image and the mats.  The image was slightly too big for the plain square die so I cut into the image where the stamped ribbon ends and slotted them outside of the die which cut the rest of the image in a square.  I need to practice this technique a bit more and make sure that I use a new blade! The mats are my repeat, repeat items for the Papertake challenge.  I edged all the layers and the base card using a pink Memento ink pad and wrapped a narrow piece of ribbon around the bottom of all the layers.  I trimmed the sentiment to size and coloured the edges as before.  The topper and the sentiment were attached to the card with 3D foam pads
