Fancy and Pink at Chocolate, Coffee & Cards

Did you read my title?  
Did you look at my card and say
'Where's the pink'?
Well, for some reason I missed the pink part
and focused on the 'fancy
Oh well it happens when you get old,
the old memory 'ain't what it used to be hah!
But hey, her cheeks are pink!

So all that being said, this week at 
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards the challenge is of course
Fancy and Pink.
Our sponsor is The Paper Shelter
and I am using one of their images called
Isn't she just the sweetest?

I created her all in lavender, one of my favorite colors lately to work with.

I added glitter to her hair, powder puff and shoes.
Buttons were added along with a few butterflies and a
pretty bow.

Take a peek over on the 
what the Design Team has created to inspire YOU!

The crocheted lace in your creation looks fabulous - I had not thought of coloring it before, I wonder why? DUH! it's a really great design idea! And even tied the know through the tiny buttons! WOW! Thanks for sharing. I hope you enjoy a wonderful weekend! hugs, de

So cute. I love the cute image and the polka dot dress.

LOL ... yep in fact I read it a couple of times and looked at your card a couple of times before I started reading! LOL
But of course it's in my favorite color so I'M OKAY WITH IT! I think it's AWESOME and your coloring is perfect! I always love how you actually add 'blush' to their cheeks and actually looks like she's a little 'flushed' (hot flash maybe ...).
Beautiful over all design Diane! Love the buttons, butterfly, crochet lace and of course that perfect triple bow! FANTASTIC even if there isn't much PINK ... great job!

Such a cute image and colored beautifully and love the bow, butterfly and lace. When you are doing as many challenges as you are,it would be hard not to make a mistake now and then. lol

Leslie Miller said...
