A couple for today

First day back at work after a 2 week break and I am so tired, couldn't get to sleep and hubby was fast asleep snoring next to me!!!! Don't think it will be long before I am crawling back into bed tonight.

The first card I covered with spotty pink paper from Pink Petticoat. I then embossed some bright pink card with my Cuttlebug embossing folder and added this down the left hand side. The image is a magnolia stamp and I have used paper piecing with some watercolouring and I really like the effect. The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat, which I have now run out of, so will have to print a batch out tomorrow!

The second card I have added a strip of the same paper from Pink Petticoat mounted onto pink card across the centre of the card. I have punched out the image from Pink Petticoat and used Sakura pens to colour the flowers in and added Liquid Pearls to the centre of each flower. This has then been mounted onto a scalloped circle in the same pink and added to the left hand side of the card. I think you all know where the sentiment is from, but just in case good old Pink Petticoat!
