Pretty Pastel Birthday

Hello!

Now I have two girls "helping" me with my stamping. The good news is that the big girl has taken the job of supervising the little girl with my precious stamps and inks. She is doing a good job of letting me stamp without having a heart attack every three minutes about mixing colours on ink pads or ruined stamps.

I have managed to make another card, despite my helpers. :-) This one is for Just Add Ink 115, which is a sketch challenge. I saw this sketch, and I immediately decided I was going to make a card using my Filigrie Border.
And I have used the colours from the new CR84FN Challenge #53.
Ooh, pretty colours!  I was so disappointed to miss the last challenge, so I was excited to find another pretty colour palette this week. :-)

This is my card.
I have used PTI Rosie Posie and Think Big Favorites #13. Colours are Stampin'Up! Soft Suede (sentiment), Pretty in Pink, Pool Party, and a little Cameo Coral for rock'n'rolling the roses. The patterned paper is SU! Everyday Enchantment. PTI Filigree Border die. Twinery twine in Blossom. SU! grosgrain ribbon.

Thanks for visiting!

You're a brave woman, Michelle! I get really antsy about anyone touching my crafty stuff! I caught Jem trotting around with a length of ribbon in his mouth the other day. Cheeky dog...

As for the card you're really making me want that filigree border now and I love the way you edged the Rosie Posie stamps in the darker ink. :)
