Pretty in Pink

The challenge this week at Penny Black Saturday Challenge was Pretty in Pink which suited me nicely as pink is my fave colour.  I used an old favourite stamp 'Uplifting Occasion' - one of my earliest Penny Black purchases and made this birthday card.

A close up of the stamped image

And the paper flower which I made using this tutorial on Inspirational tips

I used a woodware scallop punch and a Stampin' Up script stamp.  The fern is a Leonne Em floral punchart punch.  I was very brave and used glimmer mists (those who know me well know that I hate messy crafts LOL!) - I bet the neighbours wondered what I was up to as I did the spraying out in the back garden wearing gloves and apron and with my circles inside a deep cardboard box to prevent the spray from going everywhere!!!


  1. Beautiful card Karen. I love the image, that and the image of you in the garden with your mists have made me giggle xx
