Retro Pink

Good morning 🙂  Another pink card from me today….don’t know what’s getting into me lately with the pink!!!  I have an excuse for this one, as it’s for an order for a lady that loves the color 🙂  I looked all over for the right image to use, to fit the recipients tastes….and found this lovely at The Paper Shelter.  I cropped Barbershop, before printing and coloring her with Copics.  I saw this sketch, at Cheerful Sketches Challenge, and decided to use it for my layout.

I turned to a pad of DCWV papers for my choices of prints, and went with the bold pinks and blacks that coordinate with the image.  After cutting all the pieces for the sketch out, I embellished the card with a pink rose and some die cut blossoms over a few ribbon pieces, and went to town with the bling! 🙂  I’m sure the birthday girl will love this blingy pink retro lady 🙂

I’d like to enter the following with this:
