Pretty in Pink

It's the 17th. That means it's time for the monthly Lizzie Anne design team challenge. Today we're working with this photo for inspiration. And what a pretty picture it is! This is what stood out in my mind. The soft pink, green, and brown colors. The flowers. And the overall "prettiness". So, here's what I came up with.
Lots of "pretty" elements, starting with this swirly, old fashioned sentiment from Vintage Verses. I used some very pale pink Copic markers to highlight the clock, then edged the die cut with a couple of brown inks. More "pretty" came from the plethora of mixed Prima flowers, scalloped edges, shiny swirls and polka dot embossed green strip.

What's In It?
Stamps- Vintage Verses (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Paper- blush blossom, celery, chocolate, vanilla (SU)
Ink- rich cocoa (memento), vintage tea dye duo (PTI)
Other- brown brads, Prima flowers crystal swirls, fillable frames #3 die (PTI), scalloped edge punch (EK Success), swiss dot embossing folder (Cuttlebug), Copic markers, glue dots and foam adhesive

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out what the other design team girls were inspired to create:
