Pretty on Pink

Our new theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges is 'Embossing, wet/dry'. We would like to see your stamping as well. Please pop over and see what my super team mates have been making and get all the details for the challenge.

As you can see a couple of my layers are Dry Embossed.
The flower stamp is  from a set by Nantucket.
 I used some Woodware embossing power, for this part of the card.
Its got no name but comes from a set of pastel colours.
The flowers were coloured with water colour paints.
All the shading is Tattered Rose Distress ink, with a little Shabby Shutters on the edge of the card.
Other items used were Nesties for layering Memory Box Butterfly die and some lace.
I can see new changes have been happening in Blogland  while I've been away, so I think I will be feeling my way around yet again for a few days.
Challenges  entered-
