Simon says stamp - Pink & Brown!!

The theme this week over at Simon says stamp is pink and brown, one of my faourite colour combinations so of course I had to give it a go!

I adore these Leanne Ellis images available at Funky Kits. I coloured her with a mix of distress inks and whispers pens. The CS is coredinations, the checked paper from a kit from QVC and the background paper is BG and has been embossed with swiss dots. Ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment is from Elzybells.

The sentiment lends itself perfectly to decorating the inside of your card, something I don't ordinarily do and whilst this is still quite simple I like it!

Just a quick post from me. I've had a very long and not so good day at work and I feel an early night calling! I probably won't be posting for a few days either as I am off to York this weekend for my SIL's hen weekend, my baby brother gets married August BH weekend! I still can't believe he's doing it before me!

See you all in a few days, although I hope to do a little hopping tomorrow before I leave!

Hugs, Vicky -x-
