More pink?!

I know...!! I'm not sure what has come over me but I can't seem to get enough of the colour at the moment, it must be all the beautiful hanging baskets and planters that are currently decorating Dorset!! Anyway, it's new challenge day at


and our theme this time is your favourite two embellishments and why?

Those of you that visit often will know that I tend not to use many embellishments but when I have a mind to it will be ribbon (to try and reduce the size of my ribbon mountain!!) and pearls for a little bit of sheen and interest .


I didn't want to overpower the fabulous stamp so went for a relatively CAS design using papers from Pebbles Garden Party...again!! Ribbon, pearls and that's it!!

Some challenges

In the Pink #75 - Anything Goes
Crafting for all seasons #107 - Bright and Beautiful
Top Tip challenge - Ribbon and pearls

Thank you for visiting my piece of blog land, I appreciate it xx

Love pink but dont get to use it much because Nich hates it with a passion! Purple rules OK! :)

Love it, Sarah! (Love cake too!!) xxx

I also go through pink phases, where it seems no other colour will do. Quite the thing if you consider I really disliked the colour before I started crafting! lol.
Fab card hun, and that ribbon bow is just perfect! x
