Pretty in Pink

It's been quite a while since I blogged.  Where is the time going?  

Here's a card I made today which fits some challenges I've been looking at.  Some of them are new to me.  One included stamping.  I hope that stamped label and word count.  I was going to put a stamped image inside the doily but the flower looked better.

(please click on the photo of the card to get an enlarged view in order to see all the patterned papers)

All papers and embellishments are Heidi Grace.  DD1 fell in love with her collections and then gave them all to me when she decided not to make cards.  
Other materials:
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Pendants Renaissance Hearts (my doily)
Ranger Distress Ink: Mowed Lawn (summer collection)
Stampin' Up label and sentiment stamps
Sissex Alterations embossing folder (stitches which were then sanded)

I'm entering these challenges:

Mojo Monday Blinkie

I love CASE Study

Case Study Challenge-101  from this month's muse, Kristii Lockart
I took from her inspirational card the doily, bird and flower.

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Patterns Galore:  use at least 3 different patterned papers (and of course stamp).  I used 5 patterned papers and 2 stamps.

Great card, I love your faux stitches, they really look real! I will have to case that idea from you, I can't sew a stitch! Have a great day and good luck with the challenges!
