Cas-ual Fridays # 58 Pretty in Pink

Hello All!
I hope I find you well and not suffering with this horrendous weather we`ve been having here in the UK. At the moment in Hull we have hazy sunshine but I`m not sure how long that`ll last :(

I would like to offer a huge welcome to my two new followers, Linda and Kara Lynne. Thank you for choosing my l`il blog to follow.

I had a bit of spare time last night while Alan was watching the footie so I thought I`d grab the opportunity and join in with this weeks challenge at Cas-ual Fridays which is Pretty in Pink.
Now I told you earlier in the week that I was having trouble coming up with an original idea and I`m afraid that is still the case ( no pun intended) so I`ve taken my inspiration from This card of Fiona`s from Made in a Muddle.
I loved her card as soon as I saw it and have been dying to use this design.

Really easy card to make. I punched out 18 daisies from pink snippet paper and adhered them in pairs, twisting the top layer.
I made the inner circle with my Japanese paper punch out of white copy paper, stuck them on and glittered them with some Glamour Dust.
Then it was just a case of  placing them neatly. I measured and marked a spot just above the centre of the base card for my first flower and laid the others out to make sure I had the correct space for the sentiment, then adhered them by eye.
The sentiment is by Papermania.
Loved this so much I`m making more in other colours. More for the fundraising box yaay!

Thanks for poppingin ...Lynne xxx
