Two challenges in one!

This is a card I made last night for a girl at work who is finishing her placement with us next week and moving on to pastures new. I didn't want it to be a 'good luck' or 'goodbye' so I thought 'happy wishes' sounded better.

It also fits two of this weeks challenges. Michelle is offering some blog candy and to enter all you have to do is make a card using just one colour and a base card colour! So being as I like all things girly I have chosen PINK! I have also used this weeks friday sketchers LO, which I have to say I found a pleasure to work with.

The background papers are all from the papermania pastel pack. One of the pink strips of paper has been embossed with the swiss dots folder. The image is PB 'lazy days', my newest PB edition, and has been coloured in with whispers pens. Matted onto pink CS and a doodle border added. The sentiment is from hero arts and has been cut with my circle nestabilities and layered to make a topper, a pearl adhesive dot has been added to the center. Finally three adhesive crystal gems added to left hand side.

Good look if you are also entering these challenges and I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
