Crafts & Me Challenges - Pretty In Pink

Hello everyone how are you all? Are we sick of this awful weather yet.............we are supposed to be seeing pretty daffodils & the fluffy easter bunny...........not frosty the snowman!! Although us by the sea have not really had the snow a lot of my friends inland & down south have had lots!!!! :0(

Ok onto the new challenge over at Crafts & Me & this week I stepped in to do the challenge, ok me & my hubster stepped in to do the challenge lol...........yes my hubby picked the theme, which is.....
PRETTY IN PINK a lot of you girlies will lurve ;0)
Ok I'm up to my eyes in mess here so I've resorted to my box of coloured images I did a while ago for this one..............
I have used a Sweet Pea stamp, these have been soooooooooo neglected lately :0( May have gone OTT with pink...............maybe's a tad lol.
I have used MF papers & some gorgeous MF 'Organza Pouf' ribbon, sooooooooooo pretty this stuff is ;0)

Cut 2 butterflies with MB die & inked the edges & added pearls to the centre.

The paper across the middle I used Spellbinder Edgeabilities along the top to create a fancy edge.

So this is 'Come Softly' by Ching Chou Kuik & as always she has been coloured with copics, I even wrote down the colours & clipped it to the image........yay me lol.
E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20
E57, E55, E53, E51, E50
R85, R83, R81, RV1O
I also used gel pens to add some pink & white to her hair & the butterfly.
Added small doily under the image & a Whimsy Postage stamp sentiment. The pink gingham ribbon is from my stash.

Ingredients used.............
'Come Softly' Sweet Pea stamp - Crafts & Me
Flowers - WOC
'Postage' Whimsy stamp - Bunny Zoes
'C'est La Vie' Melissa Frances papers - My Crafty Heart
'Organza Pouf' ribbon - My Crafty Heart
'Isabella' MB die - My Crafty Heart
'Classic Petal' Spellbinder Edgeabilities die - My Crafty Heart

Hope you will join along this week & show us your 'Pretty In Pink' creations ;0)
