Pretty in Pink

Good Morning

My Crafty friend, followers and Visitors

I cannot belive it, yes another follower has joined by little band, welcome
PinkyLisa'sinky craft. Wow I am now up to 64 followers and hope before
much longer to get into 3 figures, that would be absolutely astounding.

I trust everyone is fine and dandy, I know its Monday and many of you
will be getting off to work, with the Monday blues but think, well it's
now one day nearer than yesterday till the  weekend is back with us !!
Hope the weather is being kind  to you in your part of the world and
that you are all keeping warm and safe.

Now done to business - It's 2nd February, the first Monday of the month
 and once again time for  another challenge over at 

  Our theme this month is :- PRETTY IN PINK
details of this months prise over on the challenge blog.

I do hope you will join us again (last month's challenge had a wonderful response)
and should you need any inspiration, please pop over to the challenge blog and
view all the gorgeous creations that our wonderful design team have
created.  Here is my little contribution, hope you like?


1. Card size 8 x 8 and I have embossed a piece of white
card  using one of the  new Crafters Companion
 Embossalicious folder called Floral Tressis.

2. Before adhering to the card I wrapped a piece of pink ribbon
across ( I know it does not show but the writing on the  ribbon
reads It's a Girl).

3. Using the new Cd Sentimentally Your from Ruby Red
available HERE I printed off the image and using
foam pads to give more height adhered it to the card.

4. The cot has been die cut with a Tattered Lace die
and glittered before attaching to the card. The ribbon
across the top, I have had for many years and I think
it's so cute.

5. To create the decorative frame I took patterned  vellum
      and using a Momento  Collection  Ornamental Lace die
created the frame and adhered it the embossed card
before attaching to the card base.

To complete I added flowers from my stash and using  Cosmic Shimmer
Vintage Pink Pearlescent PVA created the little pearls in the centre
of each flower on the embossing.

So there we are - I do hope you join in the challenge, looking
forward to seeing all you wonderful creations.

Hope you have enjoyed your visit today, until tomorrow

As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
