Pink and blue

My post for today is my first DT sample for Emma's Cards Uk blog challenge. The theme is 'Pink and Blue' and I chose pastel colours to use.

My base card is 8 x8 to which I added a slightly smaller piece of pink centura card. I then embossed a piece of white card which is smaller than the first layer creating a border. I inked the edges with ink before layering it onto my card. I then used the decorative labels die to cut out a large blue and small white shape. I used the scallop circle to cut out a pink shape and white card to cut a small circle. The small labels shape I inked the edges pink and the small circle I inked with blue. I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment onto the small white circle. I then punched my border and layered this onto a piece of pink centura card and attached pink ribbon and then made and added the bow. I placed this onto my card then added my die shapes and to finish I added gems.
