A pretty pink birthday card ....

There's a new 'use any image' challenge over on The Ribbon Girl blog and they'd like to see your cards, boxes, tags, bags and 3d craft projects, in fact, any project that includes an IMAGE.   I made a round birthday card for my neice and I used a LOTV artpad image and tag which was tucked into a pink blossom flower with a 20mm pale pink rose and a white chrysanth.  All edges were distressed with gathered twigs distress ink

My flower arrangement includes a pink gardenia, 20mm pale pink open roses, tiny pink rosebuds, rose leaves and some white Kort & Godt chrysanths.  I added little drops of Stickles to the centres of the hydrangea flowers on the image to make them sparkle

I die cut this lovely butterfly and added some distress ink and lots of Stardust Stickles to make it sparkle

I added pale pink satin ribbon then made a bow which was tied with pink Divine Bakers Twine and topped with a 15mm sparkly acrylic button.  

All of the flowers, leaves, twine, button, ribbon, lace and Stickles are from The Ribbon Girl

I hope you will have time to pop over to the blog and see the wonderful creations from our design team - they are looking forward to seeing what you make!

Such a pretty card Mary, a lovely selection of pinks, I love pink! I'm wondering
what die you used for the base or what size it is. It is a great starting point for a gorgeous card you have proved that Mary.
