A special pink card

Hello lovely people,

For those of you wondering where I have been, it has just been a busy week and a fab weekend with family.  I have a couple of days off at the moment though and am enjoying a little me (craft) time :-)

But now it's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and our theme is...


We know that not everyone will be making Mother's Day cards so any card for a special lady will do and we'd love it if you told us who it's for.
My card is for my mother-in-law's birthday but I always struggle to put names on cards so you can't tell from looking at it - lol!

She enjoys gardening so I bought this stamp with her in mind and of course, it works so well in pink!  I used the out-of-the-box technique to cut it into a circle to match the doodled frame of the stamped image.

Card recipe;
Dies: Die-namics circle stax, Anja's vintage swirls - Marianne Designs
Lace: from stash (East of India brand)

Copic colours;
Bear: E40/41/32/43
Wheelbarrow: E35/37/47/49
Presents: RV0000/000/R81/83/85/R59 & V20/22/25
Butterfly / tulips: R81/83
Grass / leaves: YG61/93/95

If you pop over to In The Pink you can check out the fabulous creations from my teamies.

I will be back later today with another card so for now, thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave.

3.  Totally Gorjuss (happy birthday)
4.  The Ribbon Girl (birthday)
