Krafty Hands Challenge

Hi guys

well I know I havent posted much, I am waiting for my darling daughter to get snap happy, as she has what I have been working on, quietly, but you want to see this months card for Krafty Hands dont you? So here you go:

Now this is from one of the older cds by Krafty Hands, this is from the Mary Englebright collection. Its a beautiful cd of old fashioned images, very 50's / 60's to my mind, reminds me of the Peter and Jane books, lol
So this is an 8x8 base card, matching backing paper from the cd, matted onto some pink card stock, for some reason the colour in the photo is more Salmony pink, than the pink pink of reality!
I got some wide reals of lace from Hobby Craft awhile ago, and to fit this months challenge, I had to use a sketch, so out came a roll of white lace, glued and glittered and cut to points and mounted behind the main image, which again was matted onto a backing paper and then the pink card.
The main image was treated with some glitter and crystal accents on the handbag, and a hole punched for the ribbon on the tag.
Finally I made a rossette with some more backing paper, added the pearls and job done,

Honestly it isnt really this salmon pink! Its a nice Pink!

so to win a voucher to spend on the Krafty Hands webshop, you need to firstly follow the main challenge blog, secondly enter the blog challenge, which you can find on the main page, and use a Krafty Hands Product! Now I happen to know that there are thousands of you out there who have Krafty Hands CD's, so whats stopping you from having a go?
