Pretty in pink

Heya! What a beautiful day we had here today. I wasn't too cold and the sun was shining all afternoon. Beautiful!

Today I want to show you a card that I made for a friend's birthday. It's still quite some time til her birthday but I've been a good girl and I've been working on things ahead. This is what the card looks like ...

I hope she will like it! I used this adorable Yumi image from Yumi & Fumi handmade. I colored the image with Promarkers and Faber Castell pencils. And guess what ... I've also done some paper piecing. That's definitely not my style. But I wanted to do something a bit different and this image is perfect for this technique. All of the papers are from my stash so unfortunately I have no idea from which company they are. I embossed the oval behind the Yumi with Cottage Floral embossing folder and . The flowers were made with TH Tattered florals die and my craft punch. On the edges of the petals I used some glitter glue. In the center of the flowers I used Viva decor pearl pen. The sentiment is a G Studio stamp which I have to admit I have been neglecting a bit lately, I haven't use it for a while.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges:
Yumi & Fumi handmade: Photo inspiration
Word art Wednesday: Anything goes
Inky inpressions: Bingo (pink, sentiment, die/punch)
Simon says stamp: Anything goes
Inky chicks: Bingo (die cuts, image, flowers)
Sketch and stash: Sketch (my "happy birthday" stamp was my "neglected" item)
Totally gorjuss: Flowers
Top tip Tuesday: Lavishly luscious layers
Baffies kreativladen: Anything goes, but no Magnolia
Creative card crew: Girly
Flutter by Wednesday: Open challenge (anything goes with butterfly or fairy)
Love to create: Anything goes with sentiment
