Simply pink and orange

This CAS card uses one of my all-time favourite Penny Black stamps 'sparklers' inked with brilliance pearlescent orange and heat embossed with detail clear. The corner piece stamp is also from Penny Black inked with versamark and heat embossed with hot pink powder. The 'thinking of you' sentiment is from the Marion Emberson stamp set used on the previous card.

Because of the white background and the shine of the embossing it was difficult to get a photo, so this is the best I can do (it doesn't really do the card justice):

Silhouettes and buttons

I bought some new Marion Emberson stamps today and thought I'd try them out straight away - simply stamped with memento tuxedo black. The two larger buttons are from Poundland and I coloured the smaller one with an orange copic because I didn't have one that colour and wanted to keep to pink and orange. The addition of a bright pink butterfly and the card was done - clean and simple.

This is for Little Miss Muffet 31: silhouettes, The paper players 87: CAS with buttons and Shopping our stash 44: buttons and/or bows.
