Pink Enchantment

This is the first of two cards I have today and it is my DT card for The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge.

We would like you to show us your Pink and Girly cards this time, I decided to use a fancy card blank, I have loads of these and for some unknown reason very rarely use them, I inked it with distress inks because it was very white.

The image is Field of Red Poppies Decoupage from The Crafty Purple Frog, the larger of the floral papers is from the Papermania Henbury Lane collection and the smaller more pastel paper is from Joanna Sheen's Jane Shasky From the Heart of the Garden CD, it is worth buying this CD for the papers alone.  The card stock along with the flower, button and dragonfly embellishments are all from my stash.

This is the inside of my card, I have decorated it to match the front:

You can also see the layers of decoupage in this photo.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The CD Sunday Challenge - Imagine
S J Crafts Challenge 2 - Flowers - include Red or Pink
CES Challenge 75 - Flower Frenzy!
The Pink Elephant Challenge 138 - Let's see those layers (at least 3 layers)
Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge Recipe 61 - Digital
2 Sisters Challenge 81 - Recipe - 1 image, 2 patterned papers, 3 embellishments ( I took this to mean 3 different embellishments - I have a flower, a button and a dragonfly)

Make sure you pop over to The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge Blog and have a look at the inspiration, you have two weeks to enter your Pink and Girly cards.

Thank you for popping in this morning, please come back later for my second DT card of the day.

Another beautiful card Pauline. I agree with you about the backing papers on The Heart of the Garden CD. In fact almost all the bp's on Joanna Sheens CD's are a must. Love the little button.
Thank you for joining in with us at Cd Sunday.
