Pretty In Pink

Hello my lovelies - something a little bit different from me this evening... not sure if it is influenced by the fact I haven't been feeling very well? I am quite pleased with it though.

I made this card from another one of Joanna Sheen's crafting CDs 'Jane Shasky From the Heart of the Garden'. It is a CD jammed full of garden, flowers, bird & butterfly images, beautifully drawn and thought it was about time I had a serious play with it.

You will see that the decoupage topper is much deeper than I usually do, but I like it's tremendous 3D effect. I have therefore kept the card fairly clean and simple so it does not retract for the decoupage itself. I have therefore used silver mirror card for the background and then layered it up with pink card that I have embossed with a new embossing folder with a rose design. Unfortunately due to the size of the topper, you cannot see the full design but it certainly adds texture. I have then added a few faux pearls for embellishment and because they look pretty. 

I am entering this card into the CD Sunday - 'Pretty in Pink from Christine' Challenge. 

What do you think about it? It's so different for me. No cute animal or bear!

Thanks for reading xx
