Think Pink

Hi Folks
Well, it's back to work today after having a couple of days off.  It has been nice having a couple of extra days at home to catch up on a few jobs.  I could quite easily get used to working only 3 days a week.  

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is
Think Pink

We have two sponsors for this challenge:
Lily of the Valley - prize of a £10 gift voucher to the winner
Digi My World - prize of a $10 voucher to the winner

I used an image from Lily of the Valley for my inspiration project.  This is actually a precoloured topper from one of their pads.  These pads are brilliant as it means you always have a lovely image to work with even if you haven't got the time to colour.  I cut the image out with one of my dies and I did add some sparkly stickles around the edge of the die cut - although it is not very clear in the photo.  The papers were freebies in a magazine.  For embellishments I simply added a ribbon, some flowers with pearls and a sentiment.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  For more inspiration and to enter the challenge just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Fashionista - Wedding or birthday
Joanna Sheen - Don't be square
LOTV - Pretty in pink
Crafting Musketeers - Ribbon and pearls
Crafty Catz - It's child's play

You made such a lovely card Mags!
I really like to thank you for your entry over at Fashionista, but we like to see a birthday or wedding themed card and I'm afraid you card doesn't fit the theme.

Please be welcome to join us next week for a new challenge!
