May You Sparkle on Your Special Day

I know I posted earlier but I was fiddling around and realised two challenges are finishing up soon and I had wanted to enter them. I haven't done the card for one and it only has 3 1/2 hours left so may have to miss it BUT I got this one done.
Love the CASology Challenge as its PINK and that makes it so easy.

I have done cards in similar design before as I stamped and embossed them all together, leaving some to be watercoloured later. Now its later.
Stamped  the gems and embossed  with silver embossing powder on watercolour paper. I decided to use Distress Inks to colour these so I just used all the pink tones: Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Tattered Rose; Victorian Velvet and Picked Raspberry. Did a bit of mixing around till I liked all the colours.

Once dry I smothered in Wink of Stella which means they have a brilliant sparkle but couldn't get that to show in these photo. They look fantastic IRL.

I was going to use a die cut sentiment but decided it would look better stamped and embossed with the Silver emboss powder.

I love this sentiment as it can be used for many different occasions and 
it is just such a nice thing to say to someone.

This is my third card I am entering in this, I couldn't find any rule as to how many times so if this is too many let me know and I will remove the link. Thank you

Thank you for coming to visit and I hope I see you again soon.


  1. Such a beautiful card. Love the colours and the most perfect sentiment. Such a pretty layout and the embossing is perfect. Yes I can never get my cards to show up the bling x

  2. Such a beautiful card and such a gorgeous sentiment. I love the silver EP and the pink tones - it looks ombré which is even lovelier. Beautifully done. Xx

  3. Love the pink gems. I'm so impressed at your lack of speckles from heat embossing, mine never gets that clean despite an anti static bag! Cara X

  4. Aileen, what beautiful colors and shades of pink you have created...I'm sure the Wink of Stella makes these gems really shine in person! Thanks for joining in the fun at CASology this week!
