Pretty in Pink Movie Monday

 This morning when I woke up and turned on the computer, I went to 365 Cards to see what the challenge would be. Was I ever surprised to see that one of my cards from last week – Sporty Saturday’s Baseball Anyone was picked as part of the Top Trio! Yay…I was able to add the cool blinky :)


Today’s challenge was to take inspiration from the movie Pretty in Pink. I could have called my sister to have her recite the movie line by line while I worked, but decided against that. It would not have been finished until after midnight. I decided to keep with the colors of the movie poster shown for my card. I began with a scrap of gray cardstock and used my Laugh stamp by Paperbag Studios. On a side note, Robin Marie, (who this is a self-portrait of) autographed it for me when the stamp first came out. She is a local gal here. I stamped it with versamark and sprinkled Tattered Rose Distress embossing powder on it. I added a layer of white and kept them askew. I added white and pink primas across the top with K & Company rhinestones for the middles. I also added two rhinestone hearts near the image.  The base cardstock is shimmery Bazzill.

I hope you had a magical Monday.
