Pink, Navy & White

A few weeks before her birthday my niece Anja, an avid reader of my blog, sent me a picture of a combination of fabrics in case I wanted a "challenge" for her birthday card. I loved the idea and tried to use all the colors and patterns. Here is the photo she sent me.

And here is the card she got:

Stamps: Dotted background (Hero Arts), roses background (Impression Obsession), sentiment (SSS)
Dies: Heart (Wplus9), banner (SSS), butterfly (Poppystamps)

The pink I used was an envelope in a former life that I recycled and it shimmers although not quite as much as the fabric.
