Pretty In Pink

Good morning, apologies for being awol AGAIN this week but I've been snowed under with work and trying to keep up with day to day stuff. It's time for a new challenge at Allsorts and our theme is 'Pretty In Pink' hosted by me :-) Our wonderful sponsors are Nicecrane Designs and A Passion For Stamps. So 2 chances to win :-)

Nicecrane  4 images of winners choice
As it is my week to host I decided to make 2 cards! The first one is made with a beautiful bright seed pack image from our sponsor Nicecrane Designs that comes pre-coloured. I printed the image several times so I could layer up parts of the flowers. I also printed a mini version to attach under the bow...

 A close up of the layered petals...

Papers - from an old C'art Us pad
Ribbon, flowers, resin flower, charm - stash
Pink twirls - The Ribbon Girl
Pink doily - from a lovely friend x
Other - Memory Box Alphabet Soup die, brown chalk inkpad, kraft cardstock

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Oldie But A Goodie - Spring Has Sprung (my paper & charm are old)

My 2nd card is made with softer pinks and a fab vintage image. I made this card for a lovely friend as the girl in the image looks very much like her daughter...
