LOC Rose Tinted

I had a lot of fun making this card - so often I am making them for specific reasons, but with this one I came home from a Scrapbooking night with my SU Demo and good friend Ann and I was inspired to case one of her cards!  This is a very loose casing, but I just loved the look and had to try it

I also came home loaded up with Ann's scraps and decided to give them new like!  I used my Layers of Color Backyard Birds for the main image and lightly coloured it with SU Chalks.  The image is then cut out using the Labels 1 Nestie, with a little bit of tearing down one side and embossed with the Victoria Embossing Folder.  I have sponged lightly with Distressing Inks.

A strip of gorgeous lace was added and  a Wild Orchid Flower - aren't they divine - I love how much they add to a card!  I finished off with some Kaiser Half Pearls - this was a very quick card to make, which is always a plus!

This card is for the following challenges:
