Make it Monday challenge this week is an inspirational picture, very pretty but a bit sugary for me, however I am trying to get back into doing a few challenges so thought I'd give it a go! While I was sorting out some boxes of card stock I found some pretty pink pearly type card so that started me off .My stamp press finally arrived from Create and Craft and it does work well, just take a bit of getting used to. I've had this Crafty Individual stamp a while and not used it before. Anyhow for the challenge I've taken from the picture The bird cage, white flowers and the colour pink. Also putting it on The Alphabet challenge which is Lace.
