Molly Bloom is in the pink .................

This is a 60th birthday card for my friend Catharine.  The actual card was cut with a Go Create die as was the background paper which is from an October Afternoon pad.

I used 'Molly  Sitting' (rubber stamps are now available from our friend Jean at  3D Jean  which I coloured in with prisma pencils blended with Sansador - I normally use copics - but I quite enjoyed using Andrea's new pencils, similar to using watercolour pencils. 
 I added 7mm fuschia satin and 12mm white cotton lace, plus 30mm pink/white roses, 10mm rosebuds and 15mm pink/white pretty blossoms, all from Ribbon Girl.  I watched Bev's video on how to fix flowers and have decanted my crafters pick glue into a small screw top jar - much easier to get some out with a pokey tool than try to squeeze it out of the tube.  The green leaves were punched with my Martha Stewart punches.
