In the Pink.....and Yellow :)

Hello, and welcome!

Has it really been a week since I last posted?  Oh dear, I really don't know how to explain that, lol.  I can only say that I've felt a need to work on my family history research, and I can get totally lost in times past.  The Hubster has been home for only the one day in the past 14, and next week will be the same, so it's been easy to lose track of time.  I haven't made even one card, this week, which is not at all like fact, the card I'm sharing today was actually made at the beginning of last week.....and I've got new crafting supplies that haven't been taken out of the packaging yet!  Perhaps I've been running a fever and haven't noticed....hahaa!

Okay....down to crafty business!  It's time for a challenge over at Card Crafter's Circle........woohoo!

This week is a COLOUR challenge for you:

Your creations should be all or predominantly pink and yellow!

We're welcoming back the fabulous Floppy Latte as our sponsor, this week, who will be offering our random winner a $6 voucher to spend in the store.

I was treated to the very lovely Floral Frame 6 to use on my card........

I started with a white card base and added some scrummy DP that came with a know me and my freebies, lol........and I put a strip of stripy pink washi tape along the bottom.......

The beautiful tulip frame came with a white background, but I chose to fussy-cut around the flowers which I coloured with Promarkers, and added a touch of sparkle to the bottom left tulip, which was decoupaged for a little extra dimension.  I popped the image onto foam to raise it from the gorgeous yellow Marianne's label onto which I'd added a rub-on sentiment......this Marianne's label die is my absolute favourite, right's so pretty and versatile because it can be used as the focal point with an image in the centre, or, as a background, or bits could be chopped off it, or......or.......okay, you get the picture.....I love it!

Love the sparkly button!  I got a pack of 12 different button twines from TKMaxx (I think it's TJMaxx in the US) for £9.99....bargain!

This simply gorgeous butterfly is a vellum sticker that was in my stash.....I love the colours! I used this pretty Joy Crafts corner on both top edges, too......

The pretty little Notes card was a free download (sorry, don't know where I got it) and I used a Craftwork Cards sentiment flower, with added pin pricks........

I love how this looks.......

Toning creamy yellow paper, a die-cut journal spot and a little more pink stripy wash tape complete the inside of this cute card.

Please pop over to the challenge blog to take a peek at some really lovely inspiration from the rest of the Team, then let's see what you can create for this week's challenge.....
