Sweetpea - Pretty in Pink


I managed to sneak this card in last night when the boys were asleep, I wasn't sure if it would look ok in daylight but I am happy with it. The image has been coloured in distressed inks and Twinkling H2O's (the yellow on the dress). I have also mixed my black distressed ink with some glimmer mist to give a twinkling twilight background. The bo -bunny papers have been distressed and placed ontop of a magazine page which had been distressed in vintage paper distressed inks. The lace and pearls are stash and the flowers are WOC.
