Beautiful Pinks

Hello everyone.  I hope everyone is having a good week.  Both my little ones are out of school for the summer and it is getting hectic having them home.  Luckily they are signed up for summer activities to keep them busy.  This week over at the Papercraft Star we have another photo challenge for you.  Create a project that is inspired by the photo.  There are suggestions to use if you choose.   For my project I was inspired by the colors and the details on the fireplace mantel.

I started with a blush cardstock and matted some white cardstock that I embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder.  I added a handmade flower some seam binding along with some pom pom trim.  

I used a sentiment from Verve that I stamped in Memento cocoa and cut using a Spellbinder's die.  On the sentiment I embellished using some half back pearls.  That's it for my card.  I love the photo and how this card came out.  Be sure to check out the rest of the design team members for some super beautiful inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by.
