Pink 'Winter Birthday' C-30

Its has come to that time of year when you have to compromise between Winter themed cards and Birthday cards, and this week over at Lexi's Creations, the focus is on 'Winter Birthdays' - specifically in pink, now who wouldn't love that?!

This is my first creation being part of Lexi's DT, so can I just say a big Hello! to everyone who doesn't know me. :) Thank you to all who joined in last week, your creations were fabulous, and well done to the winners, enjoy your goodies!! Now, onto the Challenge.

This time round, the theme is Pink 'Winter Birthday', nice and girly!! And a nice change from Christmas cards.

The sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen, you will recieve a £10 voucher to spend on her online store.

For my DT card I have used the digi image 'Kiri' isn't she gorgeous? I love her eyes and cute little boots. She is available from Fairy Dust Crafts from the 'Digi Stamps' section. I have coloured her in using ProMarkers.

I have used paper from Basic Greys Eskimo Kisses, and Indian Summer collections. The sentiment is a stamp from SU! I used the WRMK - Sew Easy tool to create the pattern for my hand stitching. I have added stickles, pearls a charm and some ribbon for added embellishment. & obviously, there had to be a little bit of corner rounding in there somewhere - achieved with my WRMK - Corner Chomper.
