Believing in Pink

Today's color challenge (CC326) is "Regal Pink Mambo", meaning colors to be used are SU!'s colors Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo --- along with a Neutral of choice and the dessert option is a round embellishment.  I don't have Melon Mambo, so I substituted Pretty in Pink.  I used my favorite technique (brayering) on the challenge --- oh, and I skipped dessert :)   Hope you like.
"Believing in Pink"
Stamps:  Just Believe (SU!)
Paper:  Sahara Sand, Regal Rose, Glossy White (SU!)
Ink:  Sahara Sand, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose (SU!); Versamark

I inked my stamp with Versarmark first and then inked over top with Sahara Sand (this gives me a juicier stamping for the embossing powder to stick to).  I stamped it on the Glossy White cardstock and then heat embossed in clear.

I brayered Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose from both the bottom and the top, leaving some white space in the middle.  I mounted the brayered image on a frame of Sahara Sand and tied the Pretty in Pink ribbon into a knot.

I mounted the pieces as per the picture above, popping up the main panel and adding the butterfly embellishment (from the $1 store!!) and three half pearls.

Quick and easy (and pretty!) card ...
