CAS-ual Fridays

So I found a new challenge blog this week - Cas-ual Fridays! 

This week the challenge was to create a clean and simple card using pink as it was national pink day on June 23rd, details of the challenge can be found HERE

Here is the card I created for the challenge, apologies in advance for the poor photo quality, the light was really bad and I had to use my phone's camera too:

The tree is from Clarity stamps, I stamped it with versamark and embossed it in white.  Then I added Spun Sugar distress ink direct to the paper to colour over it and cut out a square.  I stamped the sentiment from Waltzing Mouse in versafine onyx black ink then rounded opposite corners and layered my card up using foam pads then added the two little pink brads in the top corner.

I hope you like it, please feel free to leave me a comment so I know you popped by.
