Love and Prayers

Happy Thursday!  Only one more day till the long weekend!! Woot!  I love when my husband gets to stay home with me :)

I've tried to really hit my work hard today and bust out some cards.  They have all turned out fabulous but I really wanted to share this one with you :)
I recently won this wonderful image from Paper Makeup called Emma.  It's so precious!  The card is themed for the Link up for Pink challenge blog.  That is why there is so much pink!  Although, I do have to admit that lately pink seems to be my color choice when it comes to cards...not really sure why.  I like the softness of it I guess.  And I have a lot of soft pink papers :)

Anyway, this card came together pretty darn easy :)  That always makes me happy!  I pulled some bolder pink papers from my stash that I have had forever and trimmed them to size, distressing the edges (recently figured out how to do that (yes I'm slow) and I'm loving it!).  I punched out the heart border just wide enough for my scroll ribbon and added that behind the image.

Miss Emma is colored with my colored pencils.  I outlined her with my light blue Copics sketch marker, then added light blue and white paint dots around the umbrella, sort of to mimic water.
I used the punched out hearts from the border, layered a few together, covered them in glitter and then added them to the corner.  While everything was drying, I made up the pink flower and put a light purple pearl in the center.  The white roses I had quilled up already...which is very rare :)

The sentiment is just printed from my computer, mounted onto pink card stock and scallop cut around the edge.  Gorgeous :)
