Lots of Pink at Fab'n'Funky

Hello all. I do hope this finds you well and perhaps enjoying some lovely Spring weather. The rain has stopped and we're lovin the beautiful sunshine.  I'm headed outside after I schedule this post and take a walk around the garden.  Might just have to get a little dirty today!
But before that I've got to tell you about our new challenge at

Our fabulous team mate Wendy would like to see Lots of Pink on your creations this week

For my DT entry I chose to make an easel card and have used the very cute
 "Summer Daydream" by LOTV.   Coloured with Copics using pinks, whites and green - one of my favourite colour combinations.

I've used a lot of layers and dies on this card. DP is an old My Minds Eye stack of glittered paper that I'm slowly working my way thru.  Lace ribbon is from a friend and satin is from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.   Rhinestones from the $ store.

Several Spellbinder dies, starting with Standard Ovals, Large
Spellbinders Floral Ovals
Spellbinders Scallop Ovals
Vintage Bird Cage - PoppyStamps
Spring Border - Memory Box
Dove - Quickutz die
Leaves - SU die
Stickles - Diamond used on flowers for some bling
Tag: Spellbinders Back-to-Basics
Circle Sentiment from LOTV
Dress: R89, R85, R83, R81
             Hair: E11, E13, E15, E18
             Skin: E11, E21,E000, R11, R20
             Top: C2, C00
             Leaves: G21, YG63, G99
