Sweet and Pink

.. and pearls and swirls, embossing and black hair ... are some of the challenge themes which I followed to help me make this card.. ... 

... I'm sure it would have turned out totally different if I didn't follow challenges ... For first thing I wouldn't have done black hair ha ha .... yes today I am trying my hand at colouring black hair!!!  

I've been trying this, but never get it right, so when this week I came across a challenge to colour black hair... I just decided to have another go. ...  still not really that pleased with how mine turned out though... so I am definitely trying again....... perhaps I need more grey shades of promarkers....... 

The stamp that I am using today is the sweet Kaya with Flowers from Pink Gem Designs.. coloured her with my promarkers, papers were a freebie in the Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine .. and the flowers I got those when I was on holiday in Australia... so happy I still hadn't used them.

I popped them up on some foam over my Marianne leaf die  cut .. really loved how they turned out.

These are my challenges

- Gem of a Challenge 19 - PEARLS and SWIRLS
- Make It Colorful 15 - COLOURING BLACK HAIR
- Cute and Girly April - CUTE AND GIRLY

- Card Makin Mamas 19 - SPRING COLOURS
- CES Challenge 33 - SPRING COLOURS

Thank you for looking today and for all your lovely comments.
