Birthday Card

Hello everyone.
Today is the day when Elin does the stuff she has never done before... My very first Maggy coloured with distress re-inkers! You didn't know I like to colour did you? ;) Well, I do.
I have a short history with Promarkers, a bit longer history with Prismacolour Premier Pencils and now the DT girls have inspired me to try colouring with Distress.

This week we are going "non square" as you might have noticed. Here is my card; its a birthday card for my little girl that is about to hit the big 5. So therefore: PINK PINK PINK, and some sparkles ;)
I can never get enough of Maja Design's Vintage Summer Basics. And even though I'm a "vintage-photo" girl, there are a few Magnolia stamps in my collection. For decorations I have used lovely flowers from Kort og Godt, and some hugsnug. I've also used tulle pleat trim around the oval frame, and the cute pearl string frames the image perfectly in my eyes.
Here is a close-up of my first attempt with Distress Reinkers, and as you can see I still got a long way to go! The shadows ain't my strongest side, but I'm learning as I go :)
A closeup of these gorgeous Rolled Roses ain't wrong, they are soooo cute. I've added Melissa Frances pearls in the center of them and in the end I added a whole lot of Star Dust to the card. 
On the picture below you can take a peek at the inside too :)
Thank you for stopping by, and keep coming back will you?!!!
Please also take a look at the list of products I have used from Sandra's lovely shop, I'm sure you'll find something you like.

With Love,
