CPS #69 - Very Pink!!

Here is my first "shabby" card. I picked up this lace at the craft store a couple weeks ago and just didn't know how to use it. Then I saw this CPS sketch and it fell into place. Although this card is not my usual style, I am really pleased with it and will be making more shabby cards in the future! Because of the size of the card, it was hard to get a good photo of it. I hope you can click on it to see the details.
I used my Nestabilities to make the center scalloped frame. Inside the frame is a large flower (Making Memories, I think) that I stamped with the French Script Background stamp in Pretty in Pink ink. To the main flower, I added a 5 petal punched flower and a small daisy punched flower with a pink rhinestone brad. DP is from the Basic Grey Perhaps 6x6 pad. I love these patterns, they are so soft and flowery and perfect here (in my opinion!).
I made the flag for the Congratulations sentiment, and the Cherished sentiment is a chipboard sticker from Making Memories. It is all mounted on a 4 x 9 inch Very Vanilla card base.
This card is currently on it's way to the recipient, and I truly hope she doesn't read this entry before it arrives!!
Thanks for looking!
