Spoiler alert! Don't look, Marlou!

Hi folks! Today my post is very quick as it's nearly time for our Saturday night Chinese food and I'm pretty hungry!

I made this card for my blogging friend, Marlou, who hasn't been very well lately and I hope this might cheer her up. I've missed seeing her cards on her blog and hope that soon she'll be able to get back to crafting.

I'm also entering this card into a couple of challenges:

Freshly Made Sketches

Fusion Challenge #19 - Pink Power

The colours are Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink (brad). I stamped on vellum paper with my big 'Friendly' background stamp in black Stazon, punched out the vellum with a variety of circle sizes then wiped over the circles with the ink pads. Then I scrunched them up tightly (stabbing myself a couple of times on the sharp edges!) and opened them again. I added a brad inside the now retired silver flower brad. I added a splash or two of ink from 'Gorgeous Grunge' then stamped on the sentiment from 'Hopeful Thoughts' in Rose Red. All popped up on Regal Rose card stock.

I've just placed a Stampin' Up! order for my birthday and was able to get some real bargains in the Clearance Rack. If you're interested, click on the SU! Logo on the top right of my blog which will take you to the online store and then click on 'Products - Clearance Rack' and grab yourself a treat!
