Pink, Pearls and Posies.

Good morning everyone, I do hope that you are well this Friday morning.

I have a very busy day ahead so I am going to chat to you before I do anything else.

Today it is a new challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog.

Out new theme is

Pink, Pearls and Posies

And is hosted by Darlene.

Here is what I came up with

I started with a sheet of baking paper from the Brighton Rock paper pack

And stamped some of Tina's flowers ready to cut out

The background is the leaf wreath stencil and some pink ink

With the darker ink towards the centre

Then some more detail using this fabulous little script stencil

Followed by some matting and layering.

Next , I used another piece of baking paper

And a wonderful little die, Sylvan Sprig from Poppy

Such lovely foliage

And then onto my favourite part, flower arranging

I added the sentiment , ( this stamp is from the letterbox sentiment set ) and the butterfly .

And finally some hat pins and gems.

Here is a closer look

I lightly dusted the stencil on the insert of the card too...

I do hope you like it , and if you would like to join in , just visit

I hope you have a lovely weekend, it is Inky and Groovi classes for me at CJ CardCrafts in Edgeley , Cheshire. They are always fabulous classes with lots of laughter and friends.

Then on Sunday we are taking Mikey to that will be a day of mixed emotions.

Take care all,

Much love and hugs
