A bit of pink and a beautiful image by Stitchy

When i saw this image by Stitchy called 'Good Girl' It was one of those ooohhh light bulb  moments. I knew that i wasnted to attempt to re create the effect from the side of her top.... I added twine to a light pink striped background paper. Then added abit of bling. I wanted the twine to stand out somewhat and yet didn't want anything to take away from the image. I think i got the balance right ?

Here's my card

and a close up

I would like to add my card into the following challenges :

Card Making Mamas... Make it Girly

Challenge #107 for One Stitch At A Time

At One Stitch At A Time this week we are asking for 'new'
Now that could be a new baby, new adventure such as wedding or moving house. Or even a new craft item !! You get the idea ;O)

We are sponsored by
With 1 lucky winner. Winning their choice of die cuts.
To win this prize you need to use a StitchyBear store product.

or if you would rather create without using a StitchyBear product you can win $3 to spend at our store.

For this challenge i have used Tami from Gingerlofts' fantastic 'serenity set' which is available to buy here. Its a beautiful set and i thought it was perfect for my .Pastures New' card.
Oooh wouldnt you love to float away in those clouds some day ? I know i would :O)

I used the hot air balloon image and found some perfect matching paper.. I coloured the image with promarkers then added some glossy accents. To my card i added abit of twine and a few square gems.
The sentiment was made up eith 2 die cuts then handwritten..

Yes a very simple card but perfect for the occasion i believe...

Come and share your 'new' creation with us at the challenge blog..
I look forward to seeing all your creations..
