... I hope you've all had a good week and are looking forward to a great weekend. I've got one card to share with you now, but I've been busy - so do pop back again, I've got a couple more coming soon.
The first card has been made for three challenges - the layout from this week's Mojo Monday - MOJO223 and I've used the colours from the inspiration photo over at The Ribbon Reel Challenge - RR19. The Ribbon Reel team would like us to make a card featuring polka dots, pink and, of course, some ribbon or twine. It so happens that DYSU#54 also has a colour challenge this week - the team would like us to use pink! Yea!!
I've made a birthday card - not for anyone in particular, just one to go into my stash. As the colours are pink, I've made a really girly card! I have some wonderful papers and images from Pink Petticoat all on DVDs; but I tend to forget about them. I decided to fix that with this card. I printed the pretty rose and dot paper onto satin photo card for the background. The image is also by Pink Petticoat - it's Lola Rose and she's celebrating; I used a mixture of pencils and pens to colour the image. I stamped some pink polka dots onto white card, mounting this and the image onto black mirri card. The circle accents are made from coordinating paper coloured with Promarkers and a printed birthday greeting. Finally, I stamped a pretty butterfly and attached that to the bottom panel.

That's all for now. We're off to Chester this morning for some girly time and some shopping! I'll be back later - see you then.
