Think Pink!

Hi Friends!
I have been busy busy but alas nothing to show - that's new anyway. I have been baking wedding cakes (fruit) for my youngest son's wedding in September - all done and wrapped and maturing now, and also been making their wedding invitations, so as I say busy but all under wraps at present till later in the year.

So -- its a card from a while back that you have not seen and that I did for someone's special birthday. This particular recipient likes shopping and pink, and always wanted a pair of pink shoes! I don't know if she ever got them.

I used some of my Craftwork Cards papers for this card along with a stamp I had in my stash. I used Copics to colour the image and a little distress ink to highlight the die, cut from a Spellbinders Oval.  The pink shoe was also something that I had collected along the way knew it would come in sometime - like we crafters do- never throw anything away! You can just see a little shoe brad at the top of the sentiment on the tag as well.

I die cut the 50 and also the flowers  and stamped the Happy Birthday and then cut it the banner shape and added a touch of Craftwork Cards candy to finish.
Could this possibly be me shopping for an outfit for the wedding? NO I'm not that thin and certainly it will not be a trip to Paris to buy one!

Thanks for stopping by. I'll try not to leave it as long next time.
