In the pink at PanPastel UK

Good morning my lovelies, Sunday already and so its time for a new challenge over at PanPastel Uk and this week we're 'in the pink' so we want to see all your gorgeous pink projects to be in with a chance of winning a fabby PanPastel starter set from our lovely sponsor Berni at Your Creativity Store. 

I began by making a background using Permanent red tint PanPastel and stamped with a ruler stamp from EcoGreen with Tea Dye distress ink. My dress form die cut was embossed with a texture fade and coloured with more PanPastels, I made a little skirt from a scrap of fabric and some tulle and added a little ribbon belt with a blingy diamante buckle. 

The sentiment was a freebie stamp with Simply Homemade, layered up over a corrugated die cut heart. I've added a couple of tiny cotton reels wound with pink twine (from the lovely Linda over at the Funkie Junkie Boutique) and i've used the twine and some little pearls to add a bit of a swirl across the card. The seam binding ribbon and lace were from The Ribbon Girl

My flower is a bit of recycling, I'd got pink PanPastel everywhere and used a couple of babywipes to mop it up, the babywipes were such a pretty colour I let them dry and die cut them with tattered florals, layering them up with a pretty pearl brad.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments: use a sentiment
Happy Campers: use lace
Jellypark: girly Girl
Milk Coffee: shabby chic/vintage
Penny's Papercrafty: die cuts/punches
Perfect Sentiment: dry embossing
Pumpkin Spice: flowers
Simply Create too: anything goes

Pop over and check out my talented teamies projects if you've got a few minutes, they have really come up with some gorgeous projects again this week. Well i've got a date with a basket of ironing and a pile of paperwork for work so i'd better get to it
thanks so much for visiting
