Vintage Pink

Evening all
Hope you are all well.  Thankfully, most of the snow has now melted away.  Still pretty cold though and the fog is a bit of a nuisance.  Roll on the summer is all I can say.
Went out for lunch today with my colleagues at work.  Had a lovely meal and a laugh but all ate too much.  Spent the afternoon feeling very full and lethargic.  Don't think we were at our most productive this afternoon  lol.
Anyway, spent a bit of time relaxing in my crafty room when I got home.
Stamped up one of my Kanban ladies for this card.  Coloured it with chalk and added glamour dust to give a soft feel.  I then punched the corners and added some gems and distress ink around the edges.  The papers are First Edition called Love Letters.  Scrummy they are too.  Added some lace and ribbon at the bottom and finally used some of my pearl drop strip (not sure of the proper name) that I got for christmas from Wild Orchid.  Added a doily and lots of WOC flowers in the top corner.  Also a large bow and some die cut leaves.  If you look carefully you can see a bling flower (from Marianne Design) in the middle of the bow.

Hi Mags
Well I feel a bit of a wally. I came by recently and left my first comment and said I would be popping by and I would follow your blog. Yea, but I kinda forgot something important didn't I?!! Well I rectified it today and actually clicked on the 'FOLLOW' button. So you have to forgive me, I put it down to middle age!! LOL..
Anyway, I love the papers you have used today, the rose pink is gorgeous and goes so well with the vintage image you have used. Love the bling (dust) too.
All the best Linda
