Pretty in Pink


 
Hi and Good Morning everyone - Alison here today :)
 
My card this week was inspired by our new challenge - 'Tickled Pink', and it was lovely to play with some light floral colours and shapes, especially in January! lol.
 
I used a 6 x 6 blank card base and layered First Edition papers onto 300gsm ice white pearl card.  This cardstock was also used for the doily, border and corner die cuts,  and it gives a brilliant clean cut, even on the most intricate dies.  The 2 corner dies are from the  Lace Corner Deco I  set, and the beautiful border at the bottom is the Border Carnivale Die trimmed with some spotty pink ribbon and a bow.
 
I then matted an adorable Mo Manning image onto the gorgeous Sunflower Doily die.  This is a fabulous size, as it fills a 6 x 6 card pefectly, but still gives you lots of room to add other embellishments.   The large flowers use both sizes of the Judy's bloom dies held together with pearl brads.  The smaller flowers are Darling Daisies, and the leaves are a mix of Pine Branches and Olive Branches
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
 
 
I hope you find time to enter this week, we love seeing your Cheery Lynn Creations! :)  Dont forget there is always fresh daily inspiration from the rest of the talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog
 
I hope everyone has a smashing week and thanks so much for visiting today.
