In the pink!

Good evening, my lovelies, I hope you're all having a good week! I have been sorting out our filing cabinet, which was full of out-of-date computer info and old receipts! Not any more! The drawers will actually shut easily now, since they are no longer jammed full of rubbish!

I found some time the other day to make this card:

The image is by Hanglar and Stanglar I bought it when I first started this carding lark but was never satisfied with how I coloured her gorgeous hair. Three years on, with fine nibs for my Promarkers, I think I'm beginning to crack it!

The papers are from my Snippets box. I used a fleur de lys rectangle by Spellbinders for the image mat. I fussy cut my image, curved her slightly, and added her with foam pads just down the middle, to give dimension. there is purple glitter on the flower and Glossy Accents on her shoes.

The white satin ribbon and the textured pink one are from stash. The leaves were cut with a Spellbinders foliage die. The purple flowers and central roses are also from stash.

I'm going to trot along to The Playground (if you haven't come across Pixie's Crafty Snippets Challenge, you're missing a real treat!)

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Promarkers: Raw Sienna, Mustard, Tulip, Buttercup; Purple, Orchid, Lilac; coral, Sunkissed pink, Blush, Baby Pink; Fuschia, Pink Carnation, Blossom, Blender; Forest Green, Leaf Green

A really lovely girly card Mags. Super little image and love the colours and design.
I have a few drawers that need the clearing out treatment. Will have to do mine when hubby not here as he is a bit of a hoarder lol.

You've done a lovely job coloring this little lady. Little girls just cry out for the 'purples', don't they? The S/B die was perfect for this image, and love the pretty embellies you chose to enhance this sweet miss. TFS & have fun at the Playground. Watch out for Mrs. A & her water pistol. Hugs

Very pretty card...I have that die as well and just love it. It always looks so pretty.

I think the hair on this one and your other cards looks wonderful...fine nibs or not. I never get shading but am working on it...it sure takes a long time to see the hilites...you seem to have mastered it well!
