Card after a long time

Hi All,

Hope you are all doing great. Well, I was on the vacation to my hometown Bangalore for Dussera celebrations, and also my daughter Dhriti has joined the playschool, and I am with her in the school till she gets used to it,so my crafting mojo went down :)

Okay, onto the card, I love the white and pink combo and could not resist on trying my hands on it, the momemt I saw the challenge hosted on DCAM challenges. Thanks to all the DT's who make our brains work and I write this on almost all my posts.

A little bit onto the card description. The card base is white, and I have layered another white card distressed with Worn Lipstick DI, no pattern paper this time :). Then I have done some horizontal and vertical layering with dry embossing, only a little is seen as there are more layers adding up. The focal image is a Digi and I have coloured usink Distress Inks, I just love the cutie. Finally, some embellishing with ribbon, pearls and blooms.Only, the white blooms are handmade using MFT die, the rest are bought ones. On the whole, I like the ways its turned out.
Here is a pic of the card,
