GDT at In The Pink

Hi my lovelies, a few weeks ago now I got an e-mail asking me to be the first GDT at In The Pink and of course my answer was yes please. Pink is my guilty pleasure, and I was pleased as punch to have been picked in the top 6 for the first challenge, and this is the icing on the cake. Regular readers will know that I'm coming back off my holidays today, but I amazed even me at how quickly I got these two cards done. I'd like to enter both of these cards into the Emboss Challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

The theme is 'Embossing, Wet or Dry'.

I was asked to make a card for a friends niece's christening, and was asked for pink and girlie, so I took this as the perfect opportunity to make her card. The papers are from Raspberry Road, the edges have all been distressed and machine sewn. I've used a swirl embossing folder and then slightly sanded it, just to bring the background colour through.

The sentiment has been computer generated, the flowers are from WOC and the swirl is from here. The image is from LOTV, this is my most favourite Christening iamge, I've used to loads, I've coloured it with my distress markers and added Glamour Dust.

Here's the second card, as I was making the christening card this idea popped into my head. I've coloured Ice Tilda with my distress markers. I don't have the right size nestie to go inside this floral oval, so I cut the out the full thing and then cut round the dots and then used a snowflake embossing folder. I carefully stuck Tilda out and stuck her on and then added Glamour Dust on the snowflakes so they sparkle.
