Think Pink - The Crafting Cafe DT

Good morning all!

This is my second post today. If you're looking for my MilkCoffee post, please scroll down.

I'm back because it also happens to be the 23rd, which means it's my turn to post over at The Crafting Cafe! Our theme this month is the other biggie this month, Think Pink.

I got this utterly stunning image from our sponsor Aurora Wings to play with, and made this card:

She was soooo lovely to colour!
I teamed her up with the same pink Docraft papers I've used many times recently (yes, I am starting to run low!) and embellished with some shabby pink Frantage, pink pearls and some gorgeous baby pink ribbon secured with a pink brad. I didn't want to go overboard with the embellishments, as the image is so beautifully detailed, I didn't want to draw focus away from it.

Now, I'm hoping you'll all come play with us this month... There's still a week to enter, and let's face it we all (ok, almost all...) love to play with pink, no?

Have a fabby day everyone, and wish me luck, as it will be my first day volunteering at a local charity shop. I've been thinking about getting back into the world of work for a while, as I feel I'm doing so much better and feel up to it, and this seemed like a great way to ease myself back into it!
Also, getting an actual job in Leeds seems to be impossible if you don't want to spend your days cold calling people!

Have a great one!
