Lady with style

Evening folks
Spent a lovely day today with my Mum and younger Sister.  Don't get to see my younger Sister very often so was really nice to have some time together catching up.
Today's card is a pink and brown creation, in keeping with the challenge over at Lothian Crafts Online.
The stamp is from Kanban and I bought this a few weeks before christmas.  This is the first chance I have had to use it.  I wanted the colouring to be quite soft so coloured it with chalks.  The brown and pink card are coredinations cardstock that I distressed.  The patterned paper is from a paper pack by Tim Holtz.I created the corners by using one of my spellbinders dies.  Some flowers from WOC, a ribbon, bow and some gems and pearls finished the card.
Here is a shot of the inside.  As you can see this is a birthday card for my elder sister.
Apologies for the bad photos.  Either the light is not right or I take a blurry photograph.  Believe me when I say that it is not so fluorescent pink in reality lol.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Lothian Crafts Online - #21  Pink and Brown
Squiggle Stamps - Lets celebrate

Thanks for popping by and hope you pop by again.
