Pink Silhouettes

Today's challenge for "Ways to Use It" (WT344) is "Pink, Pink, Pink!".  I also added a challenge to myself to use up some DP that I've had for a couple of years.  And, I used a sketch challenge from a few weeks back (SC351) - I love the CAS style of this sketch.  This is a quick and simple card with a lot of impact because of the beautiful background paper.  Everything used for this card is from Stampin' Up!  Hope you like.

"Pink Silhouettes"

Stamps:  Pocket Silhouettes (SU!)
Paper:  Rose Red, Whisper White, Raspberry Tart DP (retired) (SU!)
Ink:  Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Rose Red (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  1/4" Pretty in Pink grosgrain ribbon, adhesives, sticky strips, glue dot, and dimensionals

I inked the stamps using Stampin' Write markers and stamped onto the three panels.
I wrapped the ribbon around the Raspberry Tart panel, tied a knot to one side and secured the knot with a glue dot.  I mounted the DP onto a front panel of Whisper White.  I mounted the three stamped panels, popping them up with dimensionals to add depth.

The whole front panel was mounted onto a card base of Rose Red (which you can't see).  It is just used for stability as I find the Whisper White cardstock really doesn't make a very strong card base.
