LLWWC11 - Pink! A chance to win a stamp!

Happy Wednesday! It's time for another fun challenge at La-La Land Crafts! The theme for La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge (LLWWC) #11 is PINK!

Here's what our hostess for the week, KIM, has to say about her challenge:

Now, for this is one of my favorite colors. So, for this week's challenge, I would love to see some PINK. Your project does not have to be all pink. As long as it mostly pink, that's fine.

My card this week also meets two other challenges over at SCS:

Sketch Challenge (SC253)

Try a New Technique (TLC245) Double Embossing or Blank Embossing
This is an awesome technique! Nilda Rockenbach has a video on how to do this technique. Patty Bennett has a step by step tutorial on her blog as well. I used a cereal box for my templates (following Nilda's tutorial) and it worked just fine.

Christmas Rosie with Bird (I didn't include the bird this time)


Stamp: Christmas Rosie with Bird
Paper: Pretty in Pink (SU), Rose Red (SU), Audrey Flourish (Glitz)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Pretty in Pink (SU)
