Pink again!


Yes another pink card, this time using one of the gorgeous Elisabeth Bell toppers from The Hobby House. It dos amuse me when I use a topper I nearly always get at least one comment complimenting me on my colouring! I went for a shabby distressed look, using DI tattered rose and a distress tool,  pre shaped card and some old Papermania Henbury Lane papers. Just a few bits of these left, the best papers Docrafts have ever made I think. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards, gradually using these up too. I used 2 neglected Martha Stewart flower punches along with more scraps from the same paper pack and added some pearls.

Very pretty indeed Marianne.
It is surprising how many folks either don't read the descriptions, or don't take in what they are reading. I have noticed that when I state colours in my titles and folks still see it differently!
Love you pussycat card below too :o)
