Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.

In the Pink challenge 19

Here is my card for In the Pink challenge 19 ribbons and ruffles.  The ruffles are on the dress of the image

I have embossed dark pink card with Stampin Up embossing folder.  Printed Heather Valentin digi stamp "Miss Scarlet" from Lacy Sunshine (the official and only authorized shop to sell Heather Valentin images) and coloured her with pink markers.  Her dress is the ruffles. I have added flowers and brads and then layered all onto light pink card.
Skin: copic 000
hair: distress marker tattered rose.
hat: distress marker spun sugar
dress and bag: distress makers spun sugar and worn lipstick
The only other colour on the card is her blue eyes.  I didn't think I could colour those pink.
