Swap 2: Card 5

I had a lovely selection of pink papers in my parcel and chose the striped pink for the background here.  I found an offcut of plain paper to contrast with it and ran it through the Cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder.  I found a plain white diecut that I had been given a while ago so that I could get a nice contrast between the rose embellishment and the checked diecut shape; both the latter were in my swap parcel, as was the pretty ribbon.

I soo love this card and will be just right for several celebrations:  anniversary, Mother's Day, Valentine.



I am entering this in the following challenges:

Pixie's Crafty Workshop Snippets week 58
2 Sister's Challenge Blog:  Colour Challenge
Sparkles Monthly Challenge:  Die Cuts and Flowers
