Another 'In The Pink' card

Oh, how I love the new 'In The Pink' challenge and at the moment it's Anything Goes aka Fifty Shades of Pink :) Once the girls start setting tighter challenges I might be a bit more pushed, but this second card for the challenge cried out to be made yesterday, although the little pieces were more than a tad fiddly with hot and sticky paws here:
It's decoupaged and this is a sideways view:
I used:

- 7" x 5" white card stock, one edge punched using a favourite Martha Stewart punch

- Papermania 'Garden Party' decoupage set

- raspberry pink backing card

- label made from raspberry pink card with a sentiment from the set added plus some baby pink beaded cord added

- raspberry pink Josy Rose nail heads

It reminds me of the roses Len 'picked' the other day from the garden :)

Am off to Salisbury for the day with a pal, bit of shopping and a walk along the river to feed the swans and ducks.

Have fun, whatever you have planned for the day!

This is absolutely GORGEOUS Di . . . I really love decoupage on a card for extra interest. This is ever so pretty and very summery.

Enjoy your day out.

Hi Di

Your card is fabulous.... I love the way you've made those images sparkle so much (glitter is my other weakness!!) - and the layout you've used is perfect for the images!

Thanks again for joining in the fun for a second time at In The Pink... and I'm so glad you're enjoying our challenge. Good luck and hope to see you again soon!

Christine (AKA Posh!)

Di said...

Hi Ambreen. nothing heard from Karen at all for quite a while now. No idea what's happening :(


Di said...

Hi Kath, Len just saw a big 'Spike the Hedgie', looking for food - but he ran away when Len went out to feed him :( He'll be back soon I'm sure but I ain't gonna sit waiting for him outside in my PJs just to check if he has whiskers! :) Di xx
