Pretty In Pink

Good morning folks, I'm hoping that this scheduled post has popped up as we're off on a few days break at the moment.
It's time for a new challenge over at Polka Doodles and this weeks theme is Pretty In Pink chosen by teamie Daniele so prepare for a lot of sweet creations from the Design Team and of course, me!

I chose to use elements all from the new Sugarplum Daisy CD as I love the pretty rosebud paper that I used for my backing paper here. I tore the edges for a shabby chic look and inked them with pink ink before attaching to the card blank.
I printed the sweet image and a single rose on to watercolour paper then coloured them with a mix of watercolour pencils and Prisma pencils. I added some glitter to the wings. I cut both out then added the image to a die cut oval of white card embossed with the Cuttlebug roses folder. I set this on a mat of pink polka dot paper.
I added a polka dot lace border cut out with a Marianne Design lace die and added this with some white cotton crochet lace.
I finished off with a sentiment from the CD cut out with a Marianne Design tag die, inking the edges and decorating with pearls. The final touch was a pink dotty bow.

You have until 12 noon on Sunday 22 April to enter and good luck!

Challenges for my card:
Card Makin' Mamas - Getting Girly
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - Pearls and Lace
