Pinked Out!

Well here is the first post from me for a couple of days - Pink Day was a roaring success and raised over £600! So the total for year from me to date (excluding the donations for Mum) is currently standing at £869!!!!!!! I am worn out but it was worth the effort I think! One of the members took lots of pics so hopefully will be able to scare you all very soon with a pic of me and my pink hair! OH nearly had a heart attack when he saw it................... lol. He was even more stunned when I decided his hair would look good in a shade of pink too.........

So in the run up to yesterday and in between dyeing hair, I finished a couple of cards and as they say ' here's one I made earlier' -

As I didn't have any 'wedding' cards in the stash, I decided on a (quick - lol) clean and simple card - the cream background card has a fabulous irridescent sheen on it and I used the cuttlebug 'Textile' folder to emboss. The image is one of Mo Manning's and I think it's real pretty - I decoupaged the brides 'bustle' on the back of her dress to give the card some dimension. The whole thing is mounted onto gold mirri card and a gold and cream organza bow added.

Pear Tree Designs' challenge is 'Weddings' and Stamp Something is 'Digital'
Aud Sentiments and Stampin for the Weekend both have the theme 'Anything GoesChallenge up your Life's theme is 'Celebrations'
and over at Creative Card Crew and Rainbow Ladys Challenge Blog the challenge is 'Sparkle and Shine' and I hope the sheen on the cream card qualifies!
