Hello lovely people,

I'm so excited to be able to tell you that I am now on the DT for In The Pink! Yes, I am a Pink Lady :-D
If you visit my blog regularly you will know that I LOVE making pink cards so this is absolute heaven for me!

Ok, onto our challenge for this fortnight and since In The Pink is one year old today and our very own Rizzo is celebrating a special birthday this week, there was only one possible theme we could go for...
Even better we have two, yes TWO, awesome sponsors to help us celebrate;

Winner can choose two digi images (not sentiments, watermarks or sets)

Winner receives a £10 voucher

I am absolutely in love with the new limited edition Sofiero papers from Maja Design and guess what?  They are pink!  I have teamed them up with one of the fab Stamping Bella images for this birthday card;

For some reason I often end up paper piecing the dresses on these images and then just add a little extra shading to them.  Of course, I just *had* to add a touch of Glamour Dust to finish it off :-)

Card recipe;
Image: Uptown girl Isabella loves her ice cream from Stamping Bella
DP: Maja Designs - Sofiero
Lace: from stash (via my grandmothers!)
Flowers / pearls: from Wild Orchid Crafts

Copic colours;
Skin: E0000/000/00/51 & R30
Hair: E41/42/43
Ice cream: RV0000/000/00 & RV10/11 & YR30/blender
Cone: E53/55
Skirt: teeny bit of shading with Rv0000/000/00
Grass: YG61/63

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
1.  Papertake Weekly (anything goes)
2.  Inky Chicks (lovely lace)

I am so excited to have joined In The Pink at this happy time and as if all the above wasn't enough some of the DT have hidden candy so please show us some love and leave a little comment on our blogs to be in with a chance to win some :-D

For lots of inspiration head over to In The Pink to see what the other Pink Ladies have made and then show us your pink birthday creations :-)

Before I go, here's another little something I made a couple of weeks ago...Happy Birthday Rizzo...sorry you can't actually eat it!

Thanks for visiting,

Kat xx
