The Paper Players Sketch Challenge #56 - Pink Crepe Vintage

Happy Friday Everyone,
Today's post is for The Paper Players Sketch Challenge this week.  I used Stampin' Up's Fresh Cuts stamp set that is very unloved.  Wanted to try something a little different so I coloured in the image to make some of it stand out.  I made a soft feminine flower out of Crepe Paper and the Birds and Blossoms Die.

Card: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride, Soft Suede, Crepe Paper
Ink:  Crumb Cake, Soft Suede
