Tickled Pink!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good evening to you all in the land of blog and especially today to Beth................
Beth this was created with you in mind :)

I don't know if I have already said, but I am in the middle of creating lots of Mother's Day cards for orders.  This  one was inspired by Beth who likes my girlie creations.  I have them now and again and think that this was delayed in coming due to the breaking of my grand callibur, which I have to now say thank you to Wendy at the Secret Crafter who in a matter of days has managed to arrange a replacement for me, so thanks Wendy you are such a fabulous and thoughtful person, love you to bits.

So here is my oh so girlie Tickled Pink creation
The base layer and contrast colour is a slightly darker baby pearlised pink.  I have used my Marianne die and my scallop circle nestie along with my circle nestie to create the image plates and image frames.  The scallop circle is double cut, two scallop circles to make a thin frame.  This has been edged in the inner edge with some gorgeous lace from Grimsby Crafts and within this a circle of the matching papers from Hobby House. Pearls from the Hobby House also adorn the circles and the front edge lace detail along the doily punched trim. Flowers from Wild Orchid on this occasion.

Here is a close up of the front of the card
I have stamped the Mother's Day sentiment direct onto the base designer paper but the lush ribbon is hiding it but wow what a delish ribbon.

Here is a close up of the inner return
The doily punched paper has been edged with the doily punched pink and then the lace is added behind.  The ribbon ends have been twirled down the page to frame the inner sentiment either side of the little rose.

So you see on this occasion it is totally Tickled Pink :)

I am entering this creation into the following challenges
Die Cut Dreams - Mother's Day
Wild Orchid - Dieing to punch it out
Paper Playtime - Pink and glitter
Gingerloft - Flowers

Hugs and Happy Crafting
Kate
