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:
