Pretty in Pink

Evening all, I hope you have all had a fabulous weekend and stay dry and warm.  Winter is certainly upon us and only 7 more days until Christmas.  I have had a really good day crafting in my room today and really enjoyed doing some CD crafting for a change.  It is nice to try different techniques and I bought a new CD which is a joint venture between the Glitter Girls and Jems Designs.  I have only recently found Jems designs and I must say that I absolutely adore them. 

I have used an 8 x 8 pearlescent card in white for the base card.  The first layer is pale pink pearlescent card and then I have used backing paper for the next layer from Beautiful Dreamers which you can get from Jem's Designs.  I have printed the decoupage sheet off and cut this out and layered onto pale pearlescent pink card and edged the borders in silver peel offs.  The ribbon I have crossed over and add the cream bow with hat pins from my stash.  The sentiment has been glossed using glossy accents.

Thank you for stopping by today
