Pretty in Pink with the Winter Wonderland Design Team

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the


with the challenge this week hosted by the very wonderful Miria, the theme this week is

Pretty In Pink

and we have two sponsors this week
who are offering a £10 voucher

and



Here is my design team inspirational piece, however don't forget to hop on over and see what the rest of the amazing team have created to inspire you.

I made another Nellie Snellen image card :)

I used some dusky pink card for the base layer and the pink pages of those wonderful Me To You Christmas papers.  The edges have all been distressed and the base layer has been edged with a little watered down gesso.  Now I got a wonderful gift from the very talented Paula before Xmas and in the set was this wonderful net stuff (wedding spiders web, not sure what you really call it :( ) but I coated this with a layer of gesso too, both lots of gesso were then sprinkled with glitter and left to dry.  I  added one of the corners from Paula's lovely gift along with some ribbon a double bow and some pearls to finish off the card from the Hobby House, but then added a little flower and a charm, you know I just cannot help myself sometimes, but think it will still sit nicely in an envelope.

Here is a close up of the image, coloured in copics, with some Atyou glitter and stickles. I used a white gel pen to create the swirl on the lollipop.

A warm welcome to my new followers, and I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges
