Pink Leopard?

Happy Friday!
Isn't my pink leopard pretty? She's a sneak peek from the wonderful new DRS Designs images. Love this lazy leopard but I bet you never thought you’d see a pink one. Pink Panther, maybe. But hey, I found this really neat pink ribbon w/ leopard spots and I just had to use it. This wasn't the exact layout I planned on using,  but when I was looking for some black card stock, I found this cute little black oval frame and that was all she wrote. I decided I needed to use it and I did a quick little out of the box cutting on the tree and branches of my image to fit the oval.
The background is an embossing folder. It took me longer to figure out how to color it like I wanted than anything else on this card. I arrived at this final result by sponging on the pink ink (not too carefully…there’s a lot of background so go for it!). Then I rubbed the soft sand ink pad across the high points and lastly, tapped the black ink (with a light touch) on the high points, kind of hit and miss.  I think it goes with the ribbon really well now. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out all the new releases tomorrow!
