Summer in pink and a big thankyou

Hello once again, I can't believe how long it is since I posted anything , but an even bigger surprise is that I still have 100 followers and that my blog has been visited by so many in my absence THANKYOU to each and every one of you.

Well it not that I haven't been crating in my absence only that I have literally made cards as and when needed unless time has run out on me and then I have dipped into my dwindling stockpile. Life isn't really slowing down and at times I think I am definitely loosing the battle against weeds etc in the gardens but I am making slow progress with the renovating of the house my son will live in with alterations to make it mobility challenged friendly- its the money as much as anything that makes progress slow but we'll get there in the end.

Hope all is well with you all and I have finally got around to making a card with another in the pipeline and I remembered to take piccies so I can actually share with you all.

This one is way out of my comfort zone as its pink and pink is so not my colour but I had a quick trip round blog land for inspiration and didn't fancy Christmas in July or beach /summer time so found a challenge that was open to interpretation and for me still a challenge.

I used my beloved promarkers to colour the image with some sakura gel pen to add sparkle to the images fairy dust along with some gems. The image is from magnolia ,sorry I'm not sure of its name or from which set as I bought it because I liked it many moons ago or what seems like many moons. I do like magnolia but have to say I don't own many so the ones I can afford are carefully chosen.

The dies are from making memories and spellbinders or sissix again sorry not sure which and the sentiment is from a see-dee set and embossed with moonglow embossing powder from the stampman. The papers are from scraps in my stash.

I think it makes quite a sweet card and could be used for birthday, sisters day (all mine have already been sent for the 1st of august) or just a general cheer-up card hope you agree.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
