Shades of Pink ~ Double D Challenges

Hello friends~ "Shades of Pink", that's the new theme for the challenge that's starting today over at Double D Challenges.
I was delighted with so many ideas for this challenge.  That doesn't always happen.

I had won the entire release from Pink Fresh Studio back before Christmas and I really hadn't had much of a chance to play with any of it, up until this point. 

I pulled out Choose Hope stencils and coordinating die to create this soft card in shades of pink.

The background is embossed using Lush Vines Hot Foil / Embossing Plate.  I don't have a hot foiling machine (dare I say "yet"?) so I'm glad I can use the plates for embossing.  I stenciled the flowers and leaves using Distress Oxide Inks and die cut the flower cluster out using the coordinating die.  I then brushed on just a bit of Stickles Glitter Glue to add shine to the flowers.

The sentiment is cut using Scripted Greetings, in gold and white and the two frames are cut using Poppystamps Pointed Rectangle Frames.

I do hope you'll stop in at Double D Challenges so see more amazing inspiration from my talented teammates and play along.

Here are some handy links to the products I used today:
