PINK!!!!

The title says it all, how to make me step out of my comfort zone in one easy lesson is to tell me to make a card PINK!! Now normal colours I can handle, but I am soooo not a girly girl and definately do not wear pink! lol 


Anyway enough is enough I have conquered it and made this card! 




Completely out of my comfort zone as it is the first time i have used a circle card! I am only used to square or rectangular!! Love this Lili of the Valley stamp though, well that was once I had worked out what shades of pink to colour her in!  I used glossy accents on her shades and the bag on the front to give it a patent effect, and used some gems on the flourishes which are already part of the paper. 
Picture from different angle.

Stamp - Lilli of the Valley
