Oh I am Sooooooooooooo Tickled Pink!!!!!!!!!!

Good evening to you in the land of blog
Today I got to have a little of a crafty day and managed to get some DT bits done as well as this lovely creation just for me................Just wanted to let those of you know who are interested that I will not be wearing my Bridget Jones knickers with the bolero and fascinator to the wedding next weekend as the dress arrived and after a run way show for Hannah in the bedroom, yes it will do very nicely.

So what have I created all for myself, well a short while ago very short, I was lucky enough to win a commentors  prize from Kellie at Tickled Pink Stamps
and I gave Kellie the choice of posting to me or a digi, Kellie very generously sent me two digis, oh lucky me..... so I now have a few to play with................ along with that I have recently learnt how to use multiple digis on one page of my image package, so just had to play.  So today I have made a card with Lil Birthday Kellita and Luca and both can be found here for the challenges at the Tickled Pink Sketch Challenge and Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge.  The sketch to follow is 
and the theme for Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge is Spots and Dots

So here is my creation
Nothing exciting really just an extended card using a 12 x 12 base card cut down to 10.75 inches on one side, to allow the full around the page punching.
Base layer and contrast is black pearlescent, with Papermania Capsule Mono Collection papers from the Aqua range, which for some unknown reason has purple in it.  The flowers from my stash.  The ribbon is the metal ribbon that you can pull and shape as well as twist as I have done so here.  The lace from my stash.  The image plate sentiments computer generated and the little addition is My Sentiments Exactly.  The leaves are from a nestie pack.
A close up of the metal twisted ribbon and the lace.

The image plate has been distressed with Crushed Olive Tim Holtz and over stamped with a Prima clear stamp.  The image has been coloured in copics.

I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 200 follower candy.  I will be posting my 300 candy at the end of the current candy.  For those of you that have not yet entered the 200 follower candy you can do so here, thank you to Feline for now advertising my candy too.

As always and very importantly I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave such inspirational comments on my blog, allowing me to hop back over to see your own beautiful work. THANK YOU!!
