Pretty in Pink

Good morning!  It's time for another challenge from the girls at Forever Friends...this month we are playing BINGO...which I love!

The sponsor for the randomly picked winner is Di's Digi Downloads; the winner will receive a $10 voucher to spend in their shop.

The sponsor for the "Forever Friends Favorite" is Milk Coffee Stamps; the winner will receive 3 images of their choice.  Remember, this is a judged challenge and you need to use a Forever Friends image to win!

I used a cute image from Milk Coffee (Thank you, Milk Coffee!) for my card, and I chose the top row of the BINGO card...ribbon, pink and gems.  I colored the image with pencils and embellished the image panel with Swarovski crystals.  I used a bit of ribbon in the upper left corner and a bit more in the lower right corner to embellish the handmade felt flower.  I used some paper that's been sitting in my stash for a loooong has a really nice reminds me a bit of wallpaper.

Sketch from Crafting When We Can

Here's my tip for Top Tip Tuesday: Be VERY CAREFUL when applying glitter to a digi image!  The glue can make the ink run and turn your lovely white frosting into a gray mess...not good!  Ask me how I know! (wink)  I'll tell you....  I added just a touch of glitter to my frosting to give it a subtle was a disaster!  I tried to scrape the glitter off, but that wasn't happening....  I printed another image, cut out the frosting, and adhered it over the top of the "gray mess".  All is well!

Thanks for stopping by!

I had to laugh at 'ask me how I know' - aren't most of those tips born of something that made us swear a blue streak when they happened? Sigh! And never when you've got lots of time, that's guaranteed :)
Love this cute image with all the sparkle, and that big poufy flower!!
