Hard to choose a favourite!

Hello lovely people,

It's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and our theme this time is...


Or one of your favourites if you're like me and could never pick just one!
Don't forget we want to see more pink than any other colour!

Our fabulous sponsor this time is Bunny Zoe's Crafts with a £10 voucher

I have been playing with my new floral frame dies to create a shaped base for this card and I cut down the card blank to fit the back of the shape, leaving the back section longer so it matches the height of the frame on the front.

Floral girly card featuring Opal the optimist (Stamping Bella image)

This image is a real favourite of mine because it's so glamorous and involves wine - lol!
I like the name too...Opal the Optimist is clearly a glass half full lady and I like that.
I don't think she is sharing that bottle with anyone though from the way she is hugging it!

Floral girly card featuring Opal the optimist (Stamping Bella image)

Since I was going for proper girly on this card it had to be finished off with a touch of sparkle on the dress and a few flowers but I like that it's still relatively simple.

  1. There is just one word whizzing around and around in my head. WOW! Nuff said. Hugs xx

  2. I'll second that, WOW! A gorgeously coloured image and fab card design. The floral frame die really makes a beautiful statement.

  3. I love your card Kat…I think we could all do with a bit of 'Opal the Optimist' from time to time!

  4. Hiya Kat, what a great stamp, such a fun image and I love how you have coloured her xxx

  5. Another fabulous card Kat... of course I love the Uptown Girls too (in actual fact I love FAR TOO MANY images!).. and yes, your're right about it involving the wonderful juice of the grape! However, she is either very bloated from the amount she has drunk - or she's pregnant - don't you think? Definitely a little bump there... underneath that gorgeous dress! In which case - she definitely shouldn't be downing that wine! Hic!

    Big Hugs
