Shabby Tearoom #212 Pretty In Pink For Cardabilities #96

Good evening all.
I had an order to fill, three cards, two engagement and one wedding.  The stipulation was that they had to be pink and cream/white and have a vintage look.
This is one of the engagement cards.  I used Cardabilities sketch #96.  Fortunately, the criteria of the Shabby Tea Room challenge #212 is to include white and /or cream, pink, green, flowers, lace and/or ribbon. So I qualify for both challenges this week.
I used a base of Stampin' Up Whisper White, then a layer of Blushing Bride.  The designer paper is Magnolia and is old now....I've had it at least a couple of years.
My pretty doily is one from Meg's Garden and was square.  I cut it in half diagonally and tucked it under the blushing bride layer.  The swirls are Magnolia and I cut them from white glitter card stock.  Onto these swirls I layered some die cut leaves, which once again, I think is a Magnolia die.  Garden Green is the colour card stock I used here.  Then out of some flowers from my stash, I created a bouquet.  It's all glued down firmly with Multi Medium Matte from Ranger.
A little stretchy lace across the bottom and a greeting finishes off the card.
Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Keep well.

Someone likes pink, do they? Well, I do, too, and this is simply beautiful! Pink gingham always has such a sweet look to it, and then with the gorgeous bouquet, lace, and doily -- lovely!
