Pretty in Pink

This card is for Tracy's (d-i-l) birthday later this month. I've had this set of stamps since before Christmas and not used it yet so decided that today was the day. It's from the Pumpkin & Aubergine Cupcake Delight set. It's scanned very light so not particularly clear what's been used but if you click on the picture to enlarge it the colour shows up a bit better.

I've covered the front of a square white card with some diagonally checked pink/white paper. A length of white lace is down the left hand side with some pink satin ribbon on top. I've used my Nesties to cut the circles, the back one is Core'dinations Gemstones cardstock embossed with Swiss Dots and the front one is just white hammered card stamped and the image coloured with water colour pencils. I've chalked the edges of the circle light pink. The cat is actually dark and light grey, the box pink and I've made the ribbon on the box spotty by dotting with the thin end of a red Brush Strokes pen. I got the spotty ribbon idea from the packaging! The flower is from a Papermania pack, it's white which I've chalked with a bit of light pink, and fixed with a pink brad.
