You Are Beautiful....

Afternoon LIMettes... So after missing last weeks challenge due to lack of mojo or work commitments and a visit to Dublin... I've managed to make up a card this morning (erm make that this afternoon) whilst I'm feeling sorry for myself as I've got a nasty cough that just won't go away... This week the challenge is based on photo inspiration and it's the first time I've really done this type of challenge....

Here is my little card...

Less Is More: #61 Lucky Dip Photo Inspiration

Card Recipe:
Papers: Pink Petticoat printed onto pearl card
Ribbon: The Ribbon Girl
Flower & Brad: Stash
Sentiment: MFT

Lizy is round now so should get some serious crafting done....Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow.. I'm looking after Keiran so maybe he'll be the one making the cards lol...
