Magic and sparkle

Hello lovely people,

My trip to Ikea yesterday was great; I don't really enjoy the experience all that much and Dr. Hubby certainly doesn't, but I got all the lovely things I wanted...and just a few extra storage boxes.
Because you can never have too many storage boxes, right?!

Today I have a new In The Pink challenge to share with you and our theme this time is...


We are sponsored this time by Live and Love Crafts with a £10 gift voucher

I was having a CAS moment for this one as I felt it suited the image and I do love a bit of polka dot DP, especially if it's pink!

I have had this little lady printed out and ready to colour for ages and she is certainly magical...just look at those wings, which of course, demanded a large amount of sparkle!

Uh oh...this was the last piece of this lace and I love it so much...I will just have to go shopping ;-)

  12. Kat, everything about this card is divine. Your card design is gorgeous with your lovely stitching, lace and charm. (I am VERY partial to polka dots too)!

    However, the absolute scene stealer here is your truly exquisite colouring. I just love everything about it.

    The image is a stunner but it is your colour work that sells it! Her hair is beautiful and the shading on the dress and mushrooms just wonderful. The colours you have chosen all work so well together and of course, her sparkly wings just finish the whole look perfectly.

    Beautiful all round Kat, you are FAB!
