A busy start to the week


Well, what a start to the week. I was rushing round on Sunday night to find some small boxes for my daughter to take to school. She has to make an inuksuk! Most of our cardboard goes straight in the recycling bin so I ended up having to empty things out of their boxes. My cupboard is a right mess. Then after all that she decided to come down with a horrible cold and hasn't been to school!
Anyway while she was chilling out watching Cinderella today I managed to make a quick card. She did help me choose the paper and colours. . . so it's pink!

I used a Penny Black slapstick stamp - 'Hedgehog kisses', and used promarkers to colour them in. Emma was adamant that the balloons had to be pink! The background paper is from Nit Wits - Val 'n' tine collection. These are really pretty pink papers so it's really hard to choose one - I love all of them, and think they will appear on quite a few of my cards!
I've added some mulberry paper flowers down the side of the image. I haven't used these before, but after seeing cards done by other people, I just had to have a go!

I think the flowers are so pretty - it's going to cost me a fortune as I'll have to get them in different colours! They are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I've used white sweetheart blossom flowers, 2 tone mulberry open roses 25mm, and floral foundations pink roses 15mm set B. Finally I covered the balloons with glossy accents (the photo doesn't really show it up) and added a couple of gems.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

Penny Black and more - Love and Hearts
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 184 Anything Goes
Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge - Week 40 Anything Goes

Until next time - Have a good week
