How hard was this for me.Talk about a challenge, I am so so not a pink girl as many of you will know, theoccassional splash is ok but ott pink I find so hard. Don't get me wrong there are some fantastically clever crafters out there who do pink in abundance so well and make it look so good , but boy do I struggle.
Anyway I've done this card for a few challenges who all have themes that I thought it would fit, and the less pink cards I have to do , well if I could do all the pink girly challenges in one I would.

Best let you get over the horror of my pink creation I suppose. I have to admit it's not all pink, just couldn't bring myself to do that but I really did try. I found one challenge that had pink and, thank heavens but I have to say hope I've used enough pink for the pink and sweet challenges too.

The challenges I am entering, well provided I meet the criteria that is , are;-
Anya Ink-pink and sparkly
Pollycraft-pink and brown (or green and yellow)
Simon says-lets go to the movies with dry embossing too
ABC-s for sparkle
The Greeting Farm- fab sketch love the clean simple lines
Magical crafts fortnightly challenge-something for the girls
Anyone for Anya- sweet as sugar

Well my card has pink and is definitely sparkly.
 It does have some brown too.
My movie would be 1980 Fame leg warmers and all, have to say preferred the TV series though , and haven't seen the remake.
It's definitely sparkly!
Sketch fab!
Is pink really the colour most girls like? All sickly and sweet if you ask me. Am I just not a girly girl? I suppose not yet I like doing some girly things , shopping, shoes, cooking and baking, shoes, arty things as hubby calls it, shoes , spending money , shoes. I do like boy type things though like decorating and messing with car engines too maybe I am a bit odd??

Have a great afternoon and thanks for dropping by. Did I tell you I like buying shoes?
