Soft pastels for a Vintage Vogue Mojomonday

My card today is a little thank you to the ladies who came to my Crop and Class yesterday. We were a small group but had a really good gossip and craft, it was a lovely day. I look forward to seeing you again on 12 February - and we'd love to welcome any new members who'd like to join us.

It's a switch back to one of my favourite stamp sets for this thank you and a belated try at the MojoMonday sketch that came out at the beginning of the week:

I decided to go for softer pastel colours than I usually use with this set:

Stamp sets: Vintage Vogue, Tiny Tags (sentiment)
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Always Artichoke, Pacific Point
DSP: Subtles Patterns Stack, Greenhouse Gala
Taffeta Ribbon: Pretty in Pink
Other: Subtles Brads
Non-SU: Die cuts

The card blank is an A6 landscape of Pretty in Pink. This was matted with Pink Pirouette DSP from the Subtles Patterns stack. A panel of Baja Breeze was matted with two different pieces of Greenhouse Gala DSP. The join on the papers was covered with Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon and a bow of the same ribbon was secured with a blue brad from the Subtles collection. Two pink brads were attached to the bottom right of the panel. An oval die cut was stamped with the leaves from the Vintage Vogue set in Always Artichoke ink (stamped off first so that the ink isn't too dark) and the sentiment from the Tiny Tags set in Pacific Point (Baja Breeze matches but is a little too subtle to be readable). This was matted onto a slightly larger oval die cut of Pretty in Pink card. The flowers were all inked with the rock n roll technique, first with Pink Pirouette ink and then rolled in Pretty in Pink ink, then stamped onto Whisper White card and cut out. A small and large flower were layered up and secured to the ovals with a blue brad. Three small flowers were secured to the left of the rectangular panel with blue brads. This panel was popped up on dimensionals on the card front. The ovals were then popped up over the top with more dimensionals.

If you'd like to recreate this card then the key items would be enough to gain you a free Sale-a-bration stamp set (see here to choose from the four sets on offer).
