Stampin' Up! Artistic Etchings paired with Upsy Daisy and I create a Thinking of You card.

Evening! I crafted last night after going to my little sisters house to celebrate her birthday (she's not so little any more, at 20....) It was a lot of fun, and I came home a little tipsy and with some inspiration... Here is the card I made
This is a Crumbcake card base which has a piece of Blushing Bride which I have run through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. Once it was embossed, I swiped some white ink over the top to make it stand out. I then embossed a piece of Crumbcake using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, and it too got the white ink treatment. I stamped the Eiffel Tower from Artistic Etchings in Crumbcake and the sentiment from Upsy Daisy in Basic Grey, I then sponged Crumbcake along the edges and mounted it on Blushing Bride and some scallop border punched Basic Grey. To finish this card off with a piece of pink ribbon that was in my stash. 
I am entering this into two challenges, the first is the Inkspirations Sketch challenge (below) and The Lollipop Ladies Embossed Cupcake challenge, I used the colours and embossing as my inspiration. 
Thanks for dropping by :)
Happy Stamping!
