Pretty in Pink

The challenge this week on Flutter By Wednesday is to use the colour Saphire with your butterfly or fairy, ABC have set the theme of Embossing and Die Cut Dreams would like you to use Ribbons and Trims.

For my card I have hand embossed with cutwork and I have coloured my WOJ image with Copics adding glamour dust to her wings then poppped her up with 3d pads onto a nestie. Papers are from PM and ribbon trim is from my stash.

This is the last day of the month, and what a birthday bash we have had to celebrate Danni´s big FOUR O, thank you all for making this so much fun, this is the last week of celebration candy. Anna is our Guest Designer this week, do stop by her blog and leave her some love - you will be so pleased you did and whilst hopping do stop by my teamies blogs too for inspiration ... links on my sidebar.
Welcome back Kristie and Taylor, you have both been missed.

Our wonderful Michelle has blog candy but I am not going to make it easy for you as you will have to scroll through her beautiful creations to find the post rofl.

Enjoy your day, I am off to do a quick flick, set the table then spend the rest of the afternoon in the kitchen as we have friends coming round for dinner this evening ... I will raise my glass to you all.
