Precious pink princess

Good sunday morning to ya, I hope you are well. I am feeling good - the sun is shining here and we're off to the in laws for a big sunday roast what more can a girl ask for ?!

On top of that I spent last night crafting up a storm - made loads of mess and had loads of girly fun while hubby caught himself up on all the footie - everyone's a winner !

So I was first tempted by the challenge over at scrapbook sisters - I believe this is their 1st challenge so pop on over and help them with their launch - the challenge on this occasion is to use pink and black - I couldn't resist as this colour combo always looks so flipping fab !

I chose an image I've had a while and oooed and ahhhed over loads but not actually used - thought it was just perfect - she is called little miss dress up and is available at pixie dust studio.

I knew I wanted to paper peice her as this is my most fav thing in the world at the mo and puposely chose papers that were all different so she wouldn't match perfectly. Next I coloured the rest of her with my copics then I went a bit crazy with all the stuff I added ! - flock for her feather boa (doodlebug), pearls for her necklace and a fabulous flower for her hat.

I am really pleased with the result doesn't she look just FABULOUS DAHLING !!!

Once the image was done I had a hard job finding some papers which were equally fab and finally settled on the striped paper (black tie optional - imaginisce) and the heart paper (from one of the first kits I ever bought - Dawn Bibby designs) layered up with a gorg sugary pink card stock.

The last fabulous touches was those gorg pink and black flowers (prima - I think) and a blingy gem flower for the centre with some pearl strands as my final flourish !

As well as the scrapbook sisters challenge I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges;
