Pretty In Pink

 
Good evening everyone, and welcome to that very rare event .. yes I've made a card!! As of those of you who know me well know already, I'm not doing much crafting at the moment due to family circumstances - I'm a bit short on time but moreso than that I have very little mojo.  However I'm on leave from work this week and not going away, so this afternoon I just felt like making a card - the first one in three and a half weeks!! So without further ado, here it is!
 
 
I sat down with no clear idea of what I was going to make, and just glanced at my challenge notebook to get a few ideas. I obviously haven't been entering many challenges recently, so I thought I'd try to make up for lost time today lol!
 
 
Stamps: LotV "Emma Rose Garden";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: Papermania "Lucy Cromwell" (background) and LotV "Perfect Pair" (paper roses);
Supplies: ribbon and cheesecloth from The Ribbon Girl; lace from John Lewis; pearls from The Hobby House; sentiment from LotV art pad 7 (sentiments); daisy and small roses from Wild Orchid Crafts; white spray and doily from my stash;
Tools: large classic circle and scalloped circle nestabilities; Marianne Design "English Rose" flower and leaf dies; Joy Crafts "Floral Flourishes - Butterfly" die.
