In The Pink

Good morning hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Its lovely and sunny here in Blackpool at the moment!  Over at Hobbycutz we see the start of a new challenge and the theme this week is Pink!  We are sponsored by Aurora Wings and I was given the beautiful Masquerade Owl to play with - thank you!  Here is my card:


Isn't she gorgeous? There are some fabulous images available if you have not seen any before its certainly worth having a look.  I coloured her with my Copics.  I cut the image out with Dienamics Ovals Stax and made a frame using the dies.  She is matted on Spellbinders Floral Ovals.  The paper is Craftwork Card as is the flower and post card.  I stitched around the edges (I know its very wonky lol). The leaf flourish is a laser cut from Hobbycutz which I have painted with some acrylic paint to match the card.  I thought I would go for a softer pink for my card.  Here is another view:


I don't know is anyone has noticed but the paper pads from Craftwork Cards say 6 x 6" on the front but they are actually 5 and 6/8" square hence my large borders!

Please go over to Hobbycutz and have a look at the rest of the DT work for some more inspiration.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Calendar - Petals and Pearls
Addicted to Stamps - Anything Goes
Just Inspirational - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for looking today I hope you have a wonderful day! Take care xx
