Blooming in Pink

This is going to be a quick post, as I'm super behind and barely feeling human.

I made this card for a Swap-bot swap called Spring in a Frame, which called for a card to celebrate spring. The twist was that there had to be a stamped frame of some sort. I used this pretty necklace from this week's Etsy Inspired Challenge shop, designsbycathy. It uses Arranged With Love, one of Melanie Muenchinger's sets by GinaK Designs, which plays off the botanical nature of the necklace. I used silver embossing powder to mimic the silver of the necklace. The layout is from Sketch Saturday #95.Deets:
Stamps: Arranged with Love - GinaK Designs, Sentiment is JustRite Curlz font
Paper: Basic Grey Sugar Rush, SU, MFT Perfect Paper Panel
Ink: Versamark, Distress Ink Spun Sugar
Etc: Detail Silver embossing powder, Copic markers,
Martha Stewart Doily Lace edge punch, Love My Tapes adhesive

Other challenges this card is for:
Challenge Up Your Life: "flower compliment"
Allsorts Challenge Week 44: Spring is in the Air
Crazy for Challenges C4C29: Make a spring card
Creative Cottage Challenge #2: Flowers
Little Red Wagon LRW20 : Copics
