Pretty in Pink

I love Valentines Day. It gives me an added opportunity to play with my favorite colors and embellishments, red, black, pink and glitter! Every were I look I am inspired to create something romantic! Today I wanted to take that creativity and channel it in a subtle fashion. I really love the way this card came out. The image is from Crafts and Me, Kissy Fish. I really enjoyed coloring her. I'm just learning how to color and this image was great for practicing hair and skin. I colored her with my prismas and added some liquid pearls to her flower and earring. I also put glitter on some of the flower petals on her barrete.I put glossy accents on her lips and this gave her a cute pout. I love it!! The little fish also got blinged out with glitter. Flocking my image are two flowers from recollections. The ribbon and rhinestones are from my stash. I love using rhinestones to accent my cards. They are available in so many colors and just add that extra sparkle and a place to rest the eyes. The sentiments were stamped on pink cardstock and punched out with my stampin up word window punch. The papers I used are from DCWV: The Luxury Stack and The Coral Couture Stack. The diamond shape behind my main image was cut using my Silhoutte Cameo. I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday to plan out this card. I hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it.
