Just a touch of Pink.

I made this card as one of two for a card swap. The theme was to use black and white with a touch of colour. My partner for the swap has now received her cards in Australia so I can show  here. The black and white digi is by Dover Publications from a CD-rom book by Rico
Prosperso. I printed out onto card stock and then used my largest X-cut oval nestie. I used 300gsm water card for the card base.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut out using the smallest of the oval nesties. Adhered to bottom of card with sticky pads to give the raised effect. The rose is made from snippets of card stock and the stem from a pipe cleaner bound with an off cut of ribbon and tied with a snippet of pink satin ribbon.

I would like to enter into the following challenges:
Pixies crafty workshop#39: Use up your snippets.
Card craft Mania:  Handmade Flowers.
Fab 'n' Funky: Starts with F. ( flowers)
Stampin for the  Weedend: Feeling Floral.

wow Mrs a you have been so busy while i have not been blogging much,,

... love the box you made Di that is sooooo very nice.
....love the blogging friends we have like you sending the glass etc all the way to Oz. thanks for well wishes on the mend, patience is not my strong point and will take four weeks and only 6 days into it, eyes still finicky.

Just a suggestion: (if redundant please ignore)
.. when you have links to sites, I am not sure if you have noticed there is small box to select as an option saying open in new screen.

...if you do that then it does not take folk away from your site, God bless, Shaz.x
