Something "stamped" and some pink

Happy Friday!!

Another week has come and gone, I can't believe it's almost november!! I am going to have to start thinking about christmas presents very soon. It's less than 2 months until christmas!!

Today we have another fun challenge over at stamp something. We are wanting to see something "stamped" this week, that's right, this week we want you to get your fingers inky with some "real" stamping. But that's not all, we are also wanting to see some pink on your card, it could be a lot of pink or a little pink.

For my card I used one of my new Lili of the Valley stamp, I think it's called Window box. So so cute! Another one I had to have when I placed my LOTV order.


The image has been stamped on couture 80lb card stock (from I heart papers), and colored using derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil. I embellished with some punched flowers using a Martha Stewart Punch, some ribbon, and sticky pearls. I also decided to do some machine sewing. It is really hard to see but I applied stickles to all of the flowers in the window and the punched flowers too.

I have used the sketch from sketch saturday, but I had to change the embellishment placement a little bit to work better with my image.

I am also entering my card to these challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by today, hope you'll join us this week, we have our monthly sponsor simon says this week offering a fabulous prize to one lucky winner.

Happy stamping!
Ellie.

I love the way you have left the bricks white - it really lifts the bear and gives bright feel to the card!
