Pretty in Pink!

Well hope you are all enjoying your weekends whatever you are doing.  I'm about to go and get the Sunday dinner on the go!  That's if I can stand up, after years in nursing my back has a tendancy to "go" every now and then and for the last few days it has been niggling on and off but today its quite painful.  Its a real pain in the neck (or should that be back??) but when I started nursing you had nothing like hoists and slides you just got stuck in!!  So I shall be hobbling down to the kitchen like Old Mother Hubbard! The lucky thing is that it doesn't usually last too long - lol. 

The card I have today is not all pink but pink and green, just for a change:


I must have taken about 10 pictures and fiddled with them all and this is the best I can get!!  The image is by Gayle Cook for Fairydoodles and I have coloured it with Prisma pencils.  The papers are a variety of Prima "Madeline", Memory Box "Pixie" (which i have only just realised is not a Christmas pad, Pink Petticoat Gingham and the card stock is Anna Griffin which I have had years and years.  I have cut out the heart with a Nellie Snellen die, embossed it and distressed with some acrylic paint and added glitter.  All the other shapes are Shapeabilities.  The sentiment is Anna Griffin and I have added some pearls. I will enter the following challenges:

So Artful - Sew Pretty (Dressmaker's form)
Sweet n Sassy - Favourite Things (Pink and Shapeabilities)
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes
Papercraft Star - Anything Goes
