Pretty In Pink

I hope everyone is enjoying a nice, long weekend! I had a great time yesterday - my sister and nephews came over and we crafted, played tag and grilled pizza. It was absolutely beautiful weather, and we all had a wonderful time.

We have an easy challenge for you at Karen's Doodles - Pretty in Pink. I wanted to use a very feminine image for this week, so I used Angel. I also added tons of sparkle to this one with Glimmer Mist, stickles, crystals and glittered cardstock. Can you say girlie-girl?

I used 1.5" satin rose ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and made the rose by putting a large Zot dot on a square of paper and attaching the ribbon length to this. I then started twisting the ribbon, while I wrapped it around the flower center. Then I used Fabri-tac Glue to hold the whole thing down and added it to my card. This rose takes about 30 seconds to make, but really looks very luxurious.

We hope that you will play this week. Karen keeps adding really cute images that I know you will have fun coloring.
