Kraftyhands July Challenge

Well, we are now more than half way through the year and some people are already on the countdown to Christmas. I'm still happier with summer cards at the moment. As it's the first Saturday of July, it's the start of a new challenge on the  Kraftyhands Challenge Blog. Thank you for all the lovely entries into our last challenge. The lucky winners have been announced on the challenge blog.
This month we have a pretty theme for you - providing you like pink, that is. The theme is:
"Pretty in Pink"
If you use a Kraftyhands product on your entry you could win a £20 voucher to spend in the Kraftyhands webshop

The paper and topper are from the Vintage Chic Boutique CD from Kraftyhands. It's a two disc set full of wonderful toppers, papers, inserts, embellishments and projects. Please visit the Kraftyhands webshop to pick up your copy. It's incredible value at only £9.99.

I matted the posy paper onto pink Core'dination card and used a Creata die-cut behind the pretty topper. The pink ruffled ribbon is from my stash and I created the sentiment on the computer.

The topper includes the floral background shape. I printed it off twice and cut just the central image out, I mounted it up on foam pads over the original for a bit of dimension. 
I finished the card by adding large faux pearls in the corners and tucking an off cut from a Memory Box die behind the sentiment.
Please visit the  Kraftyhands Challenge Blog for a full set of rules - you have to be a follower to qualify for entry in the challenge - and to view the fabulous creations from the talented DT. You can also keep up to date with all the latest Kraftyhands news and see sneak peeks on the Kraftyhands Facebook page and the Kraftyhands Blog.
