I'm in pink and girly mood

Once upon a time most of my cards were pink, I challenged myself to try and use other colours and some of them I've loved. Today I just seem to be in pink mode again so as Paul is away all day at a hospital appointment a couple of hundred miles away and wont be back until tonight I've got the whole day to play!!!

Here's the card I made today:

I'm not sure why my photos always seem paler on the screen than IRL. Maybe it's just my monitor and on yours it looks closer to the real colour (shruggy shoulders here!).

The lovely Sarah (aka Rainmac) sent me this image and I think it's so sweet. Thank you Sarah. I've also got to play with my new Cuttlebug embossing folder Jules Jewells which arrived this morning.

I've used:

6" x 6" card base
Pink spotty paper I printed on my computer and is from Monti's Pixel Playground
Mats are white card I've coloured pastel blue with Promarkers to match Tilda's jumper
Embossed panel is Jules Jewells Cuttlebug folder used on Core'dinations Whitewash card and sanded
Sentiment printed on computer and layered onto the reverse of the same Whitewash card
Adhesive stones on butterfly are Kanban
Butterfly charm from The Works
