Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 32

This week's colors for my fabulous upline, Stacey Schafer's, color challenge were bright and summery.  The choices for this week are whisper white, rose red, regal rose, summer sun, apricot appeal.  I had so much fun creating this card with these bright colors.  The card base is regal rose and then layered with rose red.  I brought out the Pink Flamingo DSP (which I hardly ever use...don't ask me why because it's super cute).  I also brought out the sewing maching for this card...I added a piece of regal rose grosgrain ribbon using a thread that looks an aweful lot like rose red.  The images were stamped using the Manhattan Flower stamp set on glossy white card stock...which was then layered with apricot appeal and regal rose.  The greeting was stamped using the retired stamp set from the occassions mini Well Scripted.  Last, I added whisper white and rose red buttons to the ribbon to add to the cute factor.  I had someone in mind when making this card, but circumstances got in the way and now I can't send it to her as a I will just have to sit in my card box.  Oh, well.  Hope you enjoy this card as much as I did making it.  Let me know what you think and have a fantastic day!!!
