I love making feminine cards!!!

Jennys challenge over at Wee Memories is to make a pink card or scrapbook page, no problem for me there I love making feminine cards and pink is my favourite colour to use. I also need a card for my cousins birthday so the challenge was perfectly timed.


For Jenny's inspiration she has made a scrapbook page and complimented the pink with grey, I decided to add burgundy to my card to lift the pink.


The background paper is from Vinnie Pearce and I have distressed the edges with Worn Lipstick, I am hooked on making these paper roses, they are so simple to do and are really effective. The Butterfly is from Hero Arts and I have stamped it onto some pink BoBunny paper. 
 Again I have decided to leave off the sentiment as I don't want to crowd the front of the card.
I have also managed to get my sewing machine to play ball this time, I printed the background on very thin card and it seems to prefer that to paper.
Once again I would like to thank everyone who visits and finds time to leave a comment, I appreciate all of them .
