Pretty in pink

Good evening bloggers 

Wow hasn't it been cold today?  I took my dog for a walk this afternoon and by the time I got back home my toes had gone numb.   Been in my pyjamas since then , in front of the fire crafting lol and watching create and craft.   
I was looking through my drawers earlier and I noticed I had loads of old cards in there, I'm no boarder mind you but I just don't like binning cards.

I saw this beautiful card which had a topper of a ladies stunning dress so decides to use it as a main image on my card.

I matted and layered two different patterned papers onto some gold mirror card.  I then cut then into 4 separate spares which just fit the card beautifully.  I used some gold corner peel offs and pink border peel offs and put it around the card to make another border.

I used a tag I already had, punched a hole in it and threaded some ribbon through it and attached to the card.  I also used some pink shoes die cut which I got from hunkydory , just perfect with the dress topper.


The flowers I already had which I had bought from eBay so attached them to the card too.

It's amazing where out inspiration comes from, just doing some spring cleaning and there you go a lightbulb moment lol 

I hope you enjoy my card
