MAWTT Challenge 156 - 'Celebration - Pink, Pearl and Pretty'

Good Morning! ... hope you are all doing ok.. Big Hugs to those of you that are not feeling too well ...I know a lot of horrid viruses are doing the rounds again! so I hope you feel better very soon!!  it's  time for a new Challenge over at

and the lovely Mau is our hostess this week and she has chosen the fab theme of...

'Celebration - Pink, Pearl and Pretty'

So we want to see creations made for a Special Celebration and with a Pink Theme... and some Pearls... and of course it has to be Pretty!!  it doesn't have to be a card... you could make a Tag, Gift Box etc... as long as it follows our theme! This challenge will also run for a fortnight... so closing date is 8pm BST - 1st August 2012.

As the theme is Pink and Celebration.. I thought I would do an 18th Birthday 'Girlie Girl' Card! Looking at it now - it's a bit Loud!! LOL - very Barbara Cartland !! Winking smile

The Feathers drove me nuts!!! LOL - they seemed to get static in them.. I kept trying to get them to calm down so I could arrange them to look nice!!! The lovely roses were a Birthday gift from Mau - thanks hun! The little white flowers, lace and pearl stems are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. The handbag charm, the pink pearls, the little white hearts and bows are from My Crafty Heart. The Feathers have been in my stash for years and can't remember where they were from!! Sentiment was made on computer. Now there is going to be a huge gap because Mr. Blogger says so!!!!

Image is Hannah Lynn's 'Forever Rose' from Crafts and Me and I really enjoyed colouring her!  I've used Promarkers and Flexmarkers. Lots of Icicle Stickles on the Background and on the Crystal Ball thingy!! 

Wanted to try and show the sparkle.. as it doesn't show up at all in the other photos... not sure if you can see.. but I used a pin to put some stickle bits on the iris of her eye!! 

We are sponsored this week by Crimson Cloud and they are giving a very generous prize of 3 Packs of Die Cuts...!!!

Hope you can hop on over to MAWTT for more details of the Challenge and to see my Teamies wonderful Pink Creations!! they are all Scrummy!!!
