Rose tinted spectacles!

Hi Everyone

Today is the turn of childhood memories, a sketch and everything pinkyfied!  This takes me back to being on my holidays with my parents down south and not a care in the world!

I started off with a white piece of cardstock 6 x 6 ins, then got a piece of corrugated card and pulled off the front piece exposing the 'ripple' card.  I then painted over the top 2 x pink paint, then edged it with black soot distress ink,  then pressed versamark onto the ridges and heat set with WOW 'pastel pink' embossing powder.

I then used a Spellbinder fancy lattice on patterned pink cardstock and added a pink scroll cardstock cut from the Sizzix wrapper circle.

The Joanne Sheen image was stamped onto a Spellbinder Opulent Oval in Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
The sentiment is a pre-printed one and the embellishments are card candy.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Country View Crafts - Die Cuts
Vintage Stamping Challenge - Childhood
ABC Challenge - Pretty in Pink
Pile it On - Sketch #24
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Kraft
