Vintage Card Cafe Challenge...With Love

Happy Sunday blog friends! There's a new challenge this week at the Vintage Card Cafe...we're continuing our rainbow of inspiration challenges...this week the featured color is pink! Ahh, one of my very favorites...I decided to keep a very neutral background and just add some lovely pink accents:

This shabby concoction consists of some Melissa Frances Attic Treasures papers, roughed up and inked, an inked paper doily, a lace flower and then a sugared pink rose as the crowning glory. The sentiment is from Verve's With Love set, set against a glittered piece of corrugated cardboard.

Here's our inspiration palette:
