Pink, pink, pink

I was asked to make a 70th birthday card for a lady who loves pink, really loves pink - and also loves dolls houses and flowers. I wasn't sure what to do and then I remembered my Janet Klein Stampotique house stamp, which I stamped on to a piece of pink BG eva paper and coloured the image with a mixture of copics and promarkers. The background paper is Forever Friends spring time and the pink ribbons with pearly gems are from Hobbycraft. The paper roses are by habico.

I've used the sketch for the first challenge on the new Card and a half blog:

Over on my Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge blog it's time for a new challenge - can you believe that we are already on challenge 24? For this challenge I'm asking you to use buttons - well, at least one or as many as you wish - easy peasy! Just click here to see what the challenge is all about and join in.

I've used Bo Bunny believe papers and stamped 'swirly tree' by Woodware with Brilliance pearlescent ivy, which I then embossed with clear detail powder, adding the tiny buttons for decoration.
