Fairies make me happy!

Hello lovely people,


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

HAPPY ANYTHING
Don't forget we want to see more pink than any other colour!

Our fabulous sponsor this time is Dies to Die For with a £10 voucher


This card is to celebrate the happy occasion of a birthday and in addition it makes me very happy because it is so pretty and girly, and PINK!

Girly floral birthday card featuring Saturated Canary fairy

This is one of my most used Saturated Canary images because it is so beautiful, fun to colour, and works well for all ages I reckon.

The hair colour combo I have used is a real favourite for me at the moment as it has a nice high contrast and gorgeous warm tones.

Hopefully you can see the sparkle I added to the star and frill of the dress :-)

I can't resist showing you a close up shot of these scrummy flowers because I love them so much especially the teeny rosebuds and little white bobbly things (yep, that's the technical term!).

Stunning Kat! Love that image to bits. Your colouring is always so gorgeous and that hair, love, love, LOVE it! The perfect touch of sparkle to the star and hem too. I must pull my fairy out for a play. Such a deliciously pink card and those papers, swoon. You know how I love what you do with Maja papers! Those blooms are gorgeous, bobbly bits and all! Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Hugs, Wends x
