Pink again!

Hello lovely people,

It's not my fault this time, I *had* to do see our challenge theme over at Crafty Little Fairies this week is...
Pretty in Pink!
So, I had no choice...not that I was complaining though - lol!

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Live and Love Crafts and they have the most wonderful products to choose from, including some pink ones!

I had a rummage and found some pretty Maja Design DP that I hadn't used yet and decided it was about time I inked up Gardener Gayle again - my only SC not in digi form!
I have gone for a slightly distressed feel on this card; I roughed up the edges of the DP with a Tim Holtz distressing tool and added some ink to the flowers and tag.

She is so lovely to colour up and suits the pink perfectly I think!  I tried to keep the colours muted to match the DP and shabby feel.

Here's an angled shot to show you the pretty flowers - I really must use this die more often as it is so nice to cut the flowers from matching DP for that perfect co-ordination!  And no, I didn't drop a few pearls, I just thought I would try out a few sprinkled here and there and liked the effect :-)
