Pretty in Pink at SSCC

Hello Friends,
Today it is my turn to show you my pink creation for Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central a.k.a. SSCC.
First, let me list the ingredients I used.
IMG_1699 (Small) (2)
I wanted to focus on the SSD stamps for this project and as it turns out these little Magnolia Mini’s are perfect to do this with. The detail in these stamps are spectacular and I really didn’t want to cover them up.
IMG_1700 (Small)
See what I mean? I embossed these and the thinness of the lines are perfect for embossing. What I mean about this is when you emboss as the powder heats it expands and becomes wider but because of the thickness of these lines it works perfectly!
IMG_1701 (Small)
It even works that way using the Love You sentiment. And aren’t these new flowers made for Stamping Scrapping a.k.a. SS just the perfect touch? They are gorgeous.
IMG_1702 (Small)
The inside is rather plain after looking at the front but I did want the focus on the front, as most of us do, so I did accomplish my task!
Thanks for stopping by and know that all comments are greatly appreciated even though I can’t always thank you personally!

The card is really lovely. The colouring fantastic.
My only comment - for those of us who are new to your blog, would it be possible to give us a listing, somewhere, on what the initals stand for please. What is SSCC, SSD and SS? I don't see anywhere where it tells you.
Thank you.

Stephanie this is just a gorgeous card, love all your color combinations and your nesties are so stnning with the embossing.. love your orchids and ribbon, pp, oh my goodness, just everything about this card I LOVE... just too great and of course mini Tilda is just too adorable... I only have one question, didn't we get her in the winter kit as I haven't gotten my spring kit yet or am I crazy and I got my spring kit and waiting for my summer kit... I really think it was the winter kit we got and it was in there... I don't know, not important..

Beautiful card. the colors are so rich and your coloring on mini Tilda is wonderful. Those teeny tiny's are hard to color, they're so small, wish I could color them as well as you do.
