The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - 8 March 2012

It's time for another challenge over at the Crafty Purple Frog.  This time the topic is "pink and girly".
For my card I have used the Crafty Purple Frog image called "Carnation Fairy".  Isn't she gorgeous?  I wanted to keep the card "pink and girly" but wanted to keep it springlike so no heavy colours.  I have cut out the decoupage - yes you can by pyromage/invertage sheets - but I prefer decoupage.  I have laid the image on a Nestabilities oval scallop.  The backing papers, the pink and the pink/green flowery are both from the Crafty Purple Frog and are available here.  You get a wonderful array of 50 12x12 papers for just £5.00 - what a bargain.  I have finished off the card with a gorgeous pink feather, flowers, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and pearls.
