Think Pink!


Morning everyone,

Hope you are all well, just popping in with a card I made following a sketch on 2sketches4you . I went with a pink theme because these papers are so gorgeous but more importantly it fits with the Breast Cancer Awareness month. I have been fortunate never to know anyone sufffer from this disease, but I know lots of people out there have so this card is for you and I attach to it, a great big hug.

Here are the details
  • Image: Sweet Ebony from Sugar Nellie
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Papers: K & Co
  • Ribbon, flowers, beads and brads from stash

I bought a border punch (nothing fancy!) to do the scallopy bit, need a bit more practise with it, but I love the effect, you can't see it to good in the photo but it's really pretty.

I was also working on a 'spooky' card last night and after much colouring, realised I had no black card doh!!! how can one make a spooky card with no black!!!! so it's off to the shop this morning in the pouring rain with 2 kids to get some!!!

Anywoo, thanks for stopping by, have a great day
