Perfect in Pink and an Award and a Reminder

Stamp with Fun

Its week 2 at Stamp with Fun and for this weeks theme we have a Colour Challenge for you PINK and BROWN, a great combination. Please go and have a look at the fantastic creations by my fellow Talented DT members and join us in this weeks challenge.

I hope you all had a fantastic Easter Sunday with lots of choccies, and today you can find some me time to craft. First of all I thought Tilda was giving this rose to someone, but I have found out that Edwin gave it to her instead of an Easter Egg as she is on a Diet, young girls these days always seem to be on a diet!!!!
I have seen lots of these punched vellum flowers lately so thought I would have a go, I printed the vellum with a lovely pink dot design, I liked the effect so much thought I would also use it as on the card.

Have not put a sentiment inside until I know where it is going

Stamps: Magnolia
Colouring medium: Copics on Canson Manga Art Board
Papers: From the Bearly Mine CD and DCWV Sweet Pad
Tools: Martha Stewart Heart Border Punch, Medium and Small Retro Flower punches, Ash Branch Punch, Martha Stewart Embossed Heart Punch
Embellishments: Hand punched Flowers, ribbon from stash, Tiny Buttons from Silly Monkeys Crafts, Glamour Dust

Cute Daisy May,
I was asked to be a Guest DT this week by Linnie and Jen from
Cute Daisy May, thank you girls. This weeks challenge is to make a shaped cad not square or rectangular. The Dt have come up with some lovely shaped cards so make sure you visit the blog and take a look

I used my new Nesties from The Hobby House to make this card, The base card was made by folding the card in half and making sure the fold was just overlapping the edge of the nestie. I then cute the DP and Image on smaller nesties. The cute image was a download from Cute Daisy May Designs and has been coloured with copics.
