ArtyGirlz Challenge ~ Hint of Pink

After receiving slapped legs from my CB friend Sequin when I half joked about buying a shop bought card for my mum's 70th birthday, (shame on me!), I decided to get out some of my precious Papermania silk screened, double~sided paper and actually USE it.

Normally I reserve this paper for stroking and admiring before carefully putting it back in my stash ... silly I know but believe me, it's a common thing among crafters.
I was very brave and used it to make a card for my precious mum ... 'cos she's worth it!
This particular design is Pink Floral Metallic and has the most gorgeous golden sheen when it catches the light, but my photos didn't manage to pick that up very well.

Brads, ribbons, sticky black gems and vellum were all used for decoration.

Just so happens that ArtyGirlz have a 'Hint of Pink' Challenge this week with a fabulous prize on offer, so I think this qualifies.
