It's Sunday again which means another Creative Inspirations challenge and you should check out the DT's creations this week, they are awesome! Mandy has set the challenge this time and wants you to use the colours Pink and Black. We are kindly being sponsored for this challenge by.....

I have used one of the great images from Bugaboo called 'Stella Sew', isn't she great? I have coloured her with Promarkers and Sakura Stardust pens. My friend suggested that I gave her a 'pink rinse' on her hair and I must admit it suits her. I have also added Diamond Glaze to her glasses and pearls to the pins in her hat. I then layered the image with Nesties and sewn embroidery thread around the edge. I have put a strip of satin ribbon down the panel on the left and added some daisy trim. (I wanted to put a tape measure here but couldn't find a small enough one. I have since worked out how to do one but it was a bit late for this card). The bow at the top is just two loops with pearl pins added. Finally I added some matching buttons. Hope you like this one, thanks for looking.
