A Hint of Pink

Hello friends!  Thanks for coming by again.  Its been rainy and cold here today.  A good day to make a card!

Today I used a great image from Saturated Canary called Let it Rain.  I've used her before and I think she is wonderful.  Krista's images are all adorable.
I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils.  I love using them.  This one was a little harder since I printed her so small.  I'm getting old.  I think I need some peepers  :)  lol
I used a piece of black cardstock and stamped it with a swirl stamp from Inkadinkadoo in white.  I love, love, love how this turned out.  I may use this color scheme again soon!  The pink fabric is a scrap of needlework linen (Jobelan actually) from a piece I did a long time ago.
Here's the inside.
You can see the swirls a little better here.  I'm sorry you can't see the detail on the smaller black panel.  I embossed it with my paisley embossing folder.
WAHOO!  I think you can see the swirls here in both black and white!  Bear with me ladies.  As soon as we are done with school I plan to update my blog and get a better setup with my camera.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Saturated Canary - April Showers
Shopping Our Stash - April Showers
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Black, White & One Accent
City Crafter - Hint of Pink
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Material Girl
Sketch & Stash - Sketch

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek.

Blessings & Hugs
