Pink, pearls and swirls

What a lovely combination - pink, pearls and swirls. Hot pink, black and white is one of my favourite colour combos.

The card follows the sketch for Sweet sketch Wednesday 136-73:

The pink background is an offcut of card which has been stamped with an Inkadinkado snowflakes swirls stamp, inked with versamark and heat embossed with white detail. The other papers used are all DCVW scraps that I've had for ages. I stamped the Clarity stamps baubles with versamark and heat embossed with hot pink powder. Just the addition of a few pearls here and there and the card was complete.

This is also for:
