Still addINKtive #3 - Birthday Chrysanthemum

Hello Friends,
Today's post is for this weeks Still addINKtive Colour Challenge.  The colours this week are River Rock, Pink Pirouette and Soft Suede which can be teamed with the allowed Neutrals.  For today's card I inked the Lacy Brocade embossing folder with Pink Pirouette and then ran it through the Big Shot.  I stamped the image and then cut out the circles and the Large Doily.  I punched the edges of the sentiment mat and finished off with some Dazzling Diamonds, Crochet Trim and Pearls. For the inside I embossed a panel on the bottom edge and sponged over it with Pink Pirouette.
