Special and Pink

As I have probably mentioned a couple of times I am going away on a cruise on Friday.  While I am away it is my mother-in-laws birthday so had to get this done before I go.
Used a stamp from Kanban for the main image.  I wanted the colouring to be quite soft so I used chalks to colour it.  I also added glitter to the hairpiece for a bit of sparkle.  Used a few layers of papers from Tim Holtz which I inked round the edges with some walnut stain to try and give a more aged look.  Layered the papers onto Coredinations cardstock.  The finishing touch was some ribbon, flowers from WOC and some pins.
Was quite pleased with the result and hopefully mother-in-law will like it.
Made a box for it to go in and decorated that with some matching papers and flowers.
Thanks for looking and please feel free to leave any comments.  I do enjoy reading your comments and they are much appreciated.
