Pretty In Pink


Thank you to all those who asked about son - he is starting to feel much better thanks, tomorrow will be day 5 and after that he can go back to nursery and i'm hoping to take him to a soft play on Wednesday, as he is now bored - fortunately today we went to a friends house, whose children have both had Chicken Pox.

Todays card has caused me a few headaches as i made the card, then found out the sentiment i had used was not a PB !!, disaster, so i then had to play about with it and add a new sentiment and this one definetly is PB as it's mine. I did a class at The Glitter Pot on Saturday and todays card is inspired with what we made - it also made me fall in love with my Tattered Florals, which i was struggling to even like. Shock horror also i've done something that i never do, only use a sentiment and no colouring in either.

The Challenges i'm entering are :

Allsorts - where Challenge No: 90 is 'It's All About The Sentiment'

Penny Black Saturday Friends - where Challenge No: 138 is 'Pretty In Pink'

Craft Your Passion - where Challenge No: 45 is 'Use Pink'

Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central - where their Challenge is 'Pink' and you must use 1 item from their shop - i've used Tattered Florals by Tim Holtz and Distressed Ink - Victorian Velvet

Tellens Place - where their Challenge is 'Paint It With Stripes'

Fab 'N' Funky - where Challenge No: 59 is 'Tempting Texture'

Penny Black At Allsorts - where this months Challenge is 'Say It With Flowers'

Sentiment - Penny Black - 'With Heart' 4072F
Papers - My Minds Eye - 'Fine & Dandy - Tickled Pink'
Embossed Strip and Plain Flowers - Cuttlebug - 'Victoria'
Distressed Ink - Tim Holtz - 'Victorian Velvet'
Flowers - Tim Holtz / Sizzix - 'Tattered Florals'

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x

What a beautiful card, it's very tactile with the embossed panel, the ribbon and the gorgeous flowers, even the striped paper gives a texture to it. Love the sentiment and that it's the focal point,
