Girly Girls

Good morning Britain!! It's month seven of 2013 and I cannot quite believe it. Nip and a punch for the first of the month. The first day of the month also brings about a brand new challenge over at My Mum's Craft Shop too.. and just to add to my list of firsts today, this is my first official post as a MMCS DT Member. Yeppo!! Brilliant. :] I cannot wait to get started. 

So the challenge this month is quite easy.. if you're into pink and girly things..


Naturally I found this one a little more difficult, so I went floral. I'm good with floral.. not so much with pink.. but I challenged myself, and I quite like the results.

I used the gorgeous Pretty Poppies stamp set and matching dies from My Favorite Things. I used a bunch of Memento ink to stamp the flowers and leaves and added the sentiment in a bold black ink to make it pop. 

I was originally only wanting to make one card, but I ended up die cutting a whole bunch of the leaves, flowers and buds, so I thought while I had everything out I may as well create a second card. I kept them both pretty clean and added a little bow to the right hand card using some Natural Hemp Cord in White. For a finishing touch I added some gemstones to the centre of the (pink, I know..) Poppies, and there are a whole load of different ones to choose from in the shop. 

I do hope you join in with us this month. If you're short on inspiration, be sure to head over to the blog as the DT have got a lot of gorgeous stuff to share with you all.

How'd I do? LOL!! Enjoy your day. xo
