Fabulous Darling......

Good afternoon everyone!

When I saw today's challenge over at Just Magnolia I knew I wanted to join in and make a card...... it's a great theme for a challenge to 'Think Pink' and celebrate the increasing success rate at beating breast cancer!

So the brief is to use lots of pink on your card and I don't think that's a problem for many of us crafters!

I used papermania paper and some dot embossed Bazzill card, along with the gorgeous Martha Stewart hearts border punch. I was very much inspired on this card by a stunning creation made by the lovely Dena a few months back.... you can check it out here. Isn't it stunning?!!! Thanks so much for the inspiration Dena ;o)

As you can see the card is very 3D and tactile and was great fun to make!

Thanks so much for checking me out today and have a lovely weekend!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
