The Pink Silhouette Lady

Hi My dear Friends!

Merry Belated Christmas to every body!

Sorry this post is a bit to late to wish you all a Merry Christmas, but we are still in the season of Joy and Happiness so I can still wish you all the best with your families and dear friends all over the world!!

I am still having a fantastic Christmas! We stopped over at my son's Huntly and his wonderful little family for our Christmas meal! Wow what a meal! The food was amazing!  We took breaks in between the different courses and an excuse for another glass of wine! For afters there was lovely board games and what fun we had!

We left them about midday and gone to a small town called Crieff in Perthshire, Scotland. We are staying here for a few days.  I decorated the motorhome a Scandinavia theme Red and White, and we love it! it is so festive! The fragrant candles that are burning give off this lovely Christmas aromas. I just love Christmas time!!!

Next week's Challenge #150 is


We have another Technique Challenge once a month and is ending on the 14 January

The theme for that challenge is 

Easel Card

Well everybody here is my take on this weeks Challenge:

I used a white base card stock for the card
I layered it with mint green card to bring the lovely green out of my DP papers
I used a 2 lovely stamps from's 
I used Versamark to stamp the images and used 
a Pink Embossing powder to match my DP papers
I cut my Lady out and stuck her to the small Oval I cut out from the DP papers
I used a Grand Decorative Ovals die to cut around my Oval Stamped Images
I colored her in with a Promarker in "Satin"
After I layered the DP papers onto Pink card and rapped a satin Pink ribbon in the middle
of the backing layer I glued it to my base card and glued my main images to that
I used the same Marianne Design Corner die as for the corners and and 
cut 2 corners in the mint green but just used a part of the die
to bring a bit of the Green onto the Pink Silk ribbon
I added 2 Green Pearls

These lovely Marianne Design Corner Dies is so 
delicate and cut to perfection
I used Pink card to cut 4 corners and added it to my corners

I made a Pink Angel and two different Pearl and Silver Beads Pins
I love making decorative pins with beads and charms.
I added it to the lovely bouquet of roses I made
Finally added the Rose Bouquet to my Card
