Good morning dear friends, I hope you are all having a brilliant week so far. Work has been extremely busy this week but at least the time goes quicker that way lol! It’s Thursday so that means it’s time for a brand new challenge over at charisma cardz challenge. This week the lovely Carol has set the theme and she has chosen “birthdays in pink”, which is obviously going to be a very popular theme I think!
We are sponsored this week by Robyn’s Fetish and the prize is 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and 1 digital paper set of their choice. The DT were lucky enough to be given one of their images to use on our cards this week and I chose ‘waking up birdie’ which would also be ideal as a new home card too.
Here is my card:
I have to say that I really struggled with my card, even though I really love pink!! I made the mistake of colouring my image first (which I never do) and then I couldn’t find the right papers that seemed to fit!! I settled on my standby of gingham, which I bet you are all sick of seeing lol! I kept the layout fairly simple with just a few punched flowers, pearls and a punched butterfly but I think it looks quite fresh. I hope you agree!
The rest of the DT have created gorgeous samples once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
