Pink & Frilly

Hi everyone,

Well Mother Nature is giving it to us again today with another blizzard and 20 cm of snow predicted. 
There was a sign in front of the church that says it all..."Whoever prayed for snow...Please Stop!"  
But enough of my moaning....

It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and the theme is 3 Different Design Papers.

 There is a wonderful prize for this weeks winner. I hope you get a chance to play along with us.

I love how versatile The Paper Shelter images are.  I cropped the digi  "Eva and Her Ferret", coloured her with my copics and fussy cut the image.   I so enjoyed colouring her hair.

DP - Basic Grey Bittersweet
Banner Die - La-La Land Crafts
Martha Stewart  Embroidered Floral punch around the page
Tim Holtz Distressed Ink - Walnut
Sentiment - TLC

  Card size - 6x6 in.  I kept items flat for easy mailing...the bow squishes nicely.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Craft-room Challenge - Ribbons & Lace
Craft-De BowZ - February
Digi Makeover Challenge #126 - Anything Goes

Thank you for stopping by and your comments are always welcome.

This is gorgeous Pat - such lovely papers - I haven't seen those before I'd just lock myself in the craftroom until the snow goes away if we had that much snow - fortunately we haven't had any more than one evenings worth this winter (so far!) hugs Judith x

Your diecut in the back is very pretty and the brown banner and pink hearts..well, thank you for reminding me I have that die and never used it. (head hanging down) Beautiful pink silk bow!

Her hair sure looks fantastic, Pat! I like your combination of soft and bold pinks, the ribbon is so beautiful and I really like the added lace too, it goes so well with the style of this image.

I really fell for this card! It is exquisite in its details, and I like that you "cut" the subject .. another way to use it .. lovely!
Well done!
