In the Pink

Just a quick post today as I'm off to the dentist in half an hour and yes I can see half of you cringing and the other half sighing with relief that it's not you!!

My card today is very pink and girly to fit in with a few challenges. I've used a gorgous Mo Manning image coloured with Promarkers and touched up with a Sakura Gelly Roll glitter pen. The papers are all Dovecraft Back to Baics III which came in a bag of candy from Caz (thanks again Caz). I distressed the edges of all the papers and added pearls, ribbon and star from my stash. The flower is made from a strip of lace gathered up and an old pearl button sewn to the centre.

The sparkle doesn't show up so well so here's a close up at an angle so that you can see it a bit better

Here's the sketch I followed

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge 'Pink, Pearls and Lace'
The Sketchy challenge 'Kathrin's Sketch'
The Cutie Pie challenge 'Distress Your Cards'
By the Cute and Girly challenge 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star'
Mo Manning challenge 'Anything Goes'
Sweet Stampin' challenge 'All That Glitters'
Totally Gorjuss challenge 'Anything Goes... With a Button'
