Pretty in Pink

This card is the product of a variety of challenges, first and foremost of which was a lightweight card to send abroad.

Yesterday Sketch Saturday was a nice simple layered piece, so there I go again and decide to 'faux' layer it. I won't say it's my best attempt, in fact this is definitely not one of my best cards, but it works, and I learnt various things as I went along. With more time it might have developed differently, but I'm quashing my perfectionist streak, and saying 'good enough', and good enough to share. It's not as if I'm getting to get another chance to enter some of these challenges before the deadlines have come and gone.

It hasn't photographed very well, but you might just be able to make out some embossed flowers around the edge, which have been been brushed over with ink creating the resist effect.
