Pretty in Pink

Good Afternoon Everyone

I hope your weekend is going well, its going too quickly though isn't it! 

I made a card yesterday which I don't think I like very much but am posting it anyway!  I think its the flowers, I don't normally use this many!  



I had a bit of a clear up of my images yesterday and found some pre-coloured LOTV images which I hadn't used.  This one is from a sheet called Girly Afternoons but I think now its included in the "Just for Girls" Artpad.  I used my new Lil' Inker Designs square stitched die and La La Land Open Leaf Flourish!  I added some glamour dust, pearls and some mulberry flowers from my stash.  The paper is from Maja Designs! 

I hope you like the card, even if I don't!!  

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and please don't forget to enter into my blog candy here

Love and Hugs
