Pink Pirouette is a colour I don't use much. I'm not sure why. Perhaps it's because Blushing Bride has always been my 'go to' pink. I hunted around and found that I did have a Pink Pirouette marker from when I bought a Subtles set and a couple of sheets of card from a mixed Subtles pack.
All the cards I've made using Oh, So Eclectic have been bright, so today I thought I'd try subtle.
The flowers were silver-embossed then coloured. I do love the leaves from Oh, So Eclectic! I adore that distressed look. The little silver glimmer stems are from the Eclectic Layers dies. You can see the vellum circle in behind, which I cut with the stitched circle framelit die. It's easier to see in real life because it contrasts the shiny surface of the foil acetate.
