The Creative Cottage - Going Pink!

Hiya folks!

Here we are at another Wednesday, and that means another new theme at The Creative Cottage. Our teamie Rebekah is doing the Race for Life on Sunday (yeay for her!) and she has chosen the theme of 'Going Pink'.

I have used the 'Sunny Days' kit for my card, you can purchase it HERE. I have teamed it up with one of my own images, Moonlit Sands, available in my shop, Delicious Doodles. She was coloured in with watercolour pencils.

I have used a sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp for my layout:

The base card is a lovely pearlescent baby pink. I used a MS punch for the borders and topped with some fibres from the stash. The sentiment is computer generated. The flower is made with punches and bits from the 'bits box', and I dotted some dimension paint on the petals. The bow is hand-tied and the ribbon for it came from a magazine freebie.

As this is a summery type of card, I am entering it into a few challenges with a 'summer' theme:

If you need more inspiration, head over to The Creative Cottage Challenge Blog and see what my DT sisters have come up with. You could be our winner this week, of your choice of kit! Cool huh??
