In the pink!

Hi All
Now that I know this card has been received I can happily post it to my blog and enter it into the Clarity Stamp Challenge.
This is a Christening card I was asked to make by my daughter.
She had been asked to be godmother to little Lettie, oh she is so cute! and obviously needed a card for the Christening.
What to make though?
It was going to be Beatrix Potter related but then I remembered my Baby baby Groovi plates so I set to work with those.
This is what I came up with - and if I say so myself I am really pleased with how it turned out.
The mane and tail are actually not that red in real life but quite a dark pink.
I wish I had gone over the name more than once as I did with the other words - looks a bit lost there doesn't it?
I used my Distress markers to colour everything except the hearts and these were coloured with my Spectrum Noir Pencils.
I added a little highlight to each heart and I really think it makes a difference.

Bit of character building all around the hexagon - took a while!!



My only disappointment is that I can see the double sided tape where I attached it to the backing card.
 I was going to do a wrap around and clean forgot! DOH!

Anyway, good news is my daughter was thrilled to bits with it which makes me a happy bunny.

So I am going to enter it into the Clarity Stamp Challenge which this month is Anything Goes
