PINK?????? Not normally!

Hi there peeps.

Well, over on craftbubble on the Lets Get Stamping Group, Sharon (the groups founder) is offering a stamp prize every day this week. Today's competition is to produce a card, using stamping, and featuring the colour ...... PINK. Given the name on my blog you'd be surprised to note that I don't use a lot of pink but . . . never one to give in I set about this challenge, with some gusto and this card is what I came up with. The image is coloured using Pro Markers and Atyou Spica glitter pens (which look terrifically twinkly in real life - not so much in the photograph though). I've die cut two ovals in pink plain and pink patterned paper - the plain pink is by DCWV which I then ran through a cuttlebug embossing folder before highlighting with deep pink ink. The two ovals were layered together and then adhered to some pink star paper from my colossal stack and some pink check ribbon knotted round the card and the finishing touch of two faux pearls.

So why not pop along and have a look, maybe even have a go - who knows? You might win! GOOD LUCK - there's a prize per day until Friday.

I've also entered this for the challenge #8 (glitter and sparkles) over at Pear Tree Designs so please wish me luck there too.
