Getting ready

   The theme for the Creative Corner challenge this week is pink and purple.
   I have chosen to use a Lili of the Valley stamp called 'getting ready'. I coloured it using Promarkers but added silver gel pen round the edge of the mirror and to the legs of the stool.
   I used the Die'sire die 'Christmas presents' from Crafter's Companion to cut out and emboss a 145 cm square of purple core'dinations cardstock and then distressed it. I placed this over the same size square of pink core'dinations cardstock and drew around the inside aperture and cut a slightly larger aperture from the pink. I then glued the coloured image behind the pink cardstock and glued the purple cardstock on top of the pink. The whole was then matted onto white card which was slightly bigger. To finish the card I added some pink and purple gems.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Penny Black and More - anything goes except a digi
   Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - anything goes
   Stamping Sensations - anything goes
   Digi Sketch - for the girls
   Winter Wonderland - keep it sweet and simple
