Cath Kidston inspired card

This week's Play Date Cafe Challenge 78 combines red, light blue, and pink in a playful color scheme reminiscent of Cath Kidston's fun and fabulous designs:

Here is my card:


I used DeNami Design's Solid Scallop Dot Rectangle to create the background panel.

For the sentiment, I stamped Thanks inside the Whimsical Oval Frame, colored it then applied 3D Crystal Lacquer to add shine and dimension, bordered it with sky blue pearls,  cut it out with the 3" Marvy Scallop Oval punch, and popped it up a bit with foam squares.

And here is a closer look:


Ingredients:
Cardstock:  Bazzill and DeNami Design
Pompom trim: from Paper Vineyard's ribbon cabinet
Stamps:  DeNami Design and My Little Shoebox
Ink: Memento in Angel Pink and Summer Sky; ColorBox Fluid Chalk Cat's Eye in Lipstick Red; and Copic Marker in RV21 Light Pink
3D Crystal Lacquer:  Sakura
Rhinestones:  Kaiser Craft
Scallop Oval Punch: Marvy


Thank you for taking a peek!  Have a terrific Tuesday!  :o)
