Pink, Browns and Creams for the Secret Crafter

Good morning to you all
Today sees the next challenge at the

The theme this week is chosen by our very talented Bridget and she chose

Pink, Brown and Cream

I had to create a very special Birthday Card for a fellow DT member on another challenge and just adore this image and felt it would be perfect for her as would the colours. (found out since that she loves Sweet Pea images too - bonus)

Here is what I created for my design team inspirational piece
The base layer and contrast colour is the cream with papers from Prima to compliment in the pinks.  The image is by Sweet Pea and she is beautiful to colour.  I used the creams, browns and pinks and added some distressed vintage photo around the image and sentiment along with some over stamped swirls.  A little clear gel sakuro glitter has been added for a little extra special sparkle.  The punch is a new one the MS double heart the ribbon from stash as are the pearls.  The image is coloured in copics. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo black.

Please do pop over and see what other delectable goodies the other teamies have created.

Talking of goodies, I just have to show you what I came home to Thursday, just a fabulous way to start your holiday.
I would like to say thank you to Miria who thought of me and sent me this very thoughtful gift all the way from Italy and just look at the little postcard, so pretty (hugs to you Miria)
