TLT - Catherine's Challenge - Pink & Girly!!

Well I'm thunking by the comments you loved the bloghop and the new images? Thank you to everyone who hopped and left comments and of course guessed the word was Chrysanthemum. It was so much fun and if you want to see if you were one of the Challenge or Bloghop winner's head on over lickety split to the Challenge Blog to see if your name is there :-D The entries were all fabulicious too... VERY talented crafter's you are!

Today's challenge comes from one of our newly promoted Ladybugs, the lovely Catherine and she has chosen one of my favourites...Pink & Girly {squeal}!!!! Now who DOESN'T like pink OR girly...don't answer that Tams lol!!! Tam's will tell you she doesn't do pink but I think she is slowly coming round to the idea that yes pink is yummy ;-D Please remind her of that when she posts yet another WOA with pink splashed all over it tee hee.

So I knew exactly what image I wanted to use and I'm so glad I did. Every time I use Gossip Nikki I love her more and more. This is what I came up with...

Well it's certainly pink! I used my MME 6 x 6 A Happy Heart paper pad....I just love it. I cut the corner circles with my Nesties, placed and trimmed them then stitched everything together not forgetting to stitch around the circle. I stamped and coloured Gossip Nikki  with my Copics...added glitter to the hairband and tops and some light pink Swarovski crystals as an earring, button and diamond bracelet.


Diamonds are a girl's best friend :-D

I got this fabby Die-namics die from My Mum's Craft Shop. I won Kitty's challenge at the beginning of the year and was thrilled to be able to spend my voucher on a few (read that as 4!) dies. I love these speech bubbles. My next purchase is going to be the long skinny ones :-D

The Large Rolled Rose was another die I picked up with my voucher...It's big and beautiful!

I carried the circle theme inside
