This card took much longer than it should have! I coloured one image but then ruined it by distressing the edges which didn't suit the papers. Then I mounted it on dark blue card and stamped on the flourishes which didn't look right! But finally it was finished and I'm pleased with how it has turned out. I've coloured my image with distress inks. The papers are Karen Nueburger and the flourishes are a Cuttlebug die which I've altered slightly to fit around the image. I made the scallop by punching small circles from the blue card and the embellishment is put together with scraps of ribbon, mesh and a MM flower.

Ah Sharon, I see we share a love of pink then! I haven't tried colouring with distress inks but looking at this gorgeous image may give me the impetus I need. :)
