These are a few of my favourite things (with a small splash of pink)

The theme today at As You Like It Challenge is your favourite Shaped Cards (not a square) and if you visit often, then you'll know that I really love shaped cards.  But I've been hankering after a particular Go Kreate die for quite a while, umming and ahhing whether to indulge myself.  So I decided that this challenge could be the perfect excuse reason to treat myself.  And so I did!!!   And I LOVE it.  I think it's gonna get a LOAD of use.

This card is also a 'sorry I missed your birthday' card for a lovely blogging pal who has a bit of a penchant for pink.

So prepare to be overdosed in pink, with a small splash of pink for good measure.

This really is my kind of card; lots of pink (oh yeah baby!!) a cute girlie image, a bit more pink, gorgeous satin ribbon, a smudge more pink, some sparkles (gem brad, shimmer watercolouring, glossy accents), and some flowers.

I've also used some of my all-time favourite papers from Papermania's Lucy Cromwell pad, but unfortunately with all the 'stuff' I've added, you can hardly see them.  They're embossed and glittered, but only sneak through in the corners.  :0(     Trust me though, they're GORGEOUS (and pink)   :0)
