P is for Pink

Here we are once again with a new challenge this week at Sunny Day Crafting with P is for Pink challenge. For this card I have gone back to my roots as they say. When I first started making cards almost 20 years ago, I started with a craft called Pergamano, then I moved onto 3d paper tole cards and embroidery and then from there moved onto doing Incire, Iris Folding, Teabag folding, and a number of other techniques. The last thing I tried was rubber stamping. so I am now finding Id like to combine some of the earlier things I used to do and some of the newer things I have learnt. so this card takes me back to the days when I did the 3d cards.

I have used a white oval and a pink piece cut with the floral frames from Spellbinders for the backing of these beautiful flowers that were done in the 3d effect. I have used some embossed silver stickers in the corners as well as for the greeting.
