My favourite TTC challenge this past year was FTTC189, it was the THINK PINK challenge!  And here is the card that I created for that challenge...

Pink Poises
This week I used a variety of fun stamps to create my card.  For my focal image I started by stamping the large bouquet from the "Summer Blossoms" on to Flourishes Classic White Cardstock using Memento "Rich Cocoa" ink.
To create the pink back ground behind the lattice and also the strip of pink paper across my card, I used the stamps, "I Love Roses" and the "Sweet Nature" stamp sets to create a subtle tone on tone back ground.

To add some shine, I added some Glossy Accents to my flower centers as seen below...

For my focal image, I used a variety of fun Copic colours...

Here are the Flourishes Copic Collections which I used...
