Plethora of Pink!

I have had a rush on 40th Birthday cards recently - there must have been something in the water in 1971!!

A lady wanted another like the Forty and Fabulous one but done in pink - I have a thing about making two cards the same - so - here is what I've come up with and I hope it's OK for her! And PINK enough!

The image is from Bugaboo coloured with promarkers and some stickles used on the hat,  ankle bracelet and the earrings for a bit of bling! I edged the main image with a teeny bit of glitter for some sparkle.I colured a couple of flourishes (thanks Maureen) with a promarker to co-ordinate the colours and isn't it always the way that out of a TON of ribbon, I didn't have one that was the right shade? So out again with the trusty promarker.

I have had the 'cocktail glass' metal charm for eons and I was sitting staring at the bottom left of the card thinking it was missing something when this little light bulb appeared over my head and illuminated the charm! I actually think it looks fine - I hope!!!
Pearls, flowers etc all from my stash.
Oh, and |I made and decorated a box for it to go in!
