Creative Belli #109 The letter “P”

I am a LOVER of Pink, so went to town using it for the Creative Belli Challenge  with the theme of The letter “P”.
Here is a close up of the glimmer in the background:
I made some Technique Junkies backgrounds a while back, and did not label them, so have no clue what the technique is…..
“P” I used Pink, Punches- around the center image and for the sentiment and for the upper corners (same punch as the center panel- I have not used this for AGES),  and  I added pearls on the punched (white) panel. There is also a touch of stitching around the outer border of the card.
The stamps are red rubber from a new stamp company Rogue Redhead. The digi sentiment is from Create with TLC.  My daughter Katie is quite the avid reader, so I will send this to her and maybe send something for her in it that will put a smile on her face.
The Premise of the Belli challenge is to use your old and forgotten embellishments…..use your forgotten backgrounds or stamps or embellishments!   For some great inspiration, check out the rest of the Creative Belli designers:

What a sweet card. I often forget to write the name of a technique onto the backing and just hate it when I do.
