Sketch Saturday #190, Pollycraft #123, Ribbon Girl #15

Hi all!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday #190 provided the sketch I used on the card.

The Ribbon Girl blog's challenge #15 was a color challenge in which we were to use blue and pink. The image is stamped on blue ink, plus I colored a dress and a shawl blue. The designer paper has a vintage rose color, and one of the dresses is colored pink, as well as the flowers in the stamped image.

Pollycraft Monday's challenge #123 had us playing bingo. We were to pick a row from a bingo card which had different elements and incorporate those on our project. I chose the last column, which was to use die cuts, lace and pearls.

Here's the card:

The image came from my stash. It was stamped in blue ink. Also sponged light blue ink around the image and then added some distress ink on top of the light blue. I don't know the maker of the image. I cut it out using nestabilities and then cut out two more layers out of kraft card stock, distressed the edges with a distressing tool, then inked the edges. Much to my dismay, the distress ink I used to stamp the sentiment looks orange. The card was a complete nightmare to photograph anyway. I went with no flash, because the flash gave it a really bad look.

Here's the supplies:
stamp: unknown image; Urban Design- Communique Curves Sentiments
ink: unknown blue; Colorbox- ice blue; Tim Holtz distress inks in Tea Dye and Vintage Photo
Copic colors: E000, E23, E27, E33, BG0000, R12
card stock: Papertrey Ink- Fine Linen, Kraft; a dark kraft that came as packaging material from a Verve Stamps order; Georgia Pacific white
patterned paper: K & Company- Classic K Margo Mat Pad
accessories: My Favorite Things- Double Scallop Border die-namics; Kaisercraft pearls; golden lace trim; Labels 1 nestabilities; Tim Holtz distressing tool; sponge dauber; Fiskars corner rounder punch
