Pretty in pink birthday card

Good evening bloggers.

How is your Sunday been so far? 

Mine has been quiet. Both my boys have been out all day, so took the dog for a walk, did housework and I'm so nervous about tomorrow decided to make a large birthday card to take my mind of it. 

Image was already coloured, coloured her in last week with my pro markers. 
I used 2 A4 piece of cards to create a large card.  Instructions here:  Large card tutorial
I matted and layered four squares to attach to the card front.  

Used some off white/peachy lace to Matt the digi stamp onto with a framed sizzix die.   Then used some more peach lace to wrap around it.  Spellbinders does we're used for the gate, row of paper flowers and sentiment plus pink flowers were from my stash. Butterflies are Martha Stewart does and used gold heart peel offs for the corners. 

Enjoyed making this card and I adore the colours.  Well I know I said is be away this weekend from my blog but just can't stop crafting.  Lol

Won't be crafting tomorrow though but will pop along your blogs and share my love. 

Have a wonderful evening. 
Take care all
Sharon xx

Hi Sharon,
beautiful card. Love all the wonderful details. Such pretty papers used. Great design too.
I do hope all went well with your hospital appointment today. I hope you are not too sore from the needle.
Sending bug hugs your way if your feeling rough.
Not got round to doing the measurements for the box and card yet as been gardening and I am not feeling too good tonight. Promise I will send it soon.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
