PB Pink Paradise

It has been a few days between posts for me, which is unusual - it is not that I am not creating, but I am working on some thing I cannot show you just yet, but will be able to soon...

In the meantime I have been colouring some images I have had sitting around for a long time - colouring is so soothing - love it!

I have coloured an image from Penny Black - I love her images and was delighted to discover that they are more than just hedgehogs (LOL) although I do love them too....

The image has been cut using Spellbinders Labels Two and a Die from the Spellbinders Ironworks Accents Die.  I have cut this in half and framed the DieCut image with it - a different way to use your Dies - I love to find more than one way for each one - makes them so versatile!

The sentiment is from the retired Layers of Color Sentimental Banners clear art stamp set, which coordinates beautifully with the Spellbinders Ribbon Banners Die - that makes it so easy...and we love that!  All Dies have been cut with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur.

Lace, buttons and twine all help finish off this card and give it some dimension.

This card is for the following challenges:
