Sweet and Pink - Papertake and ABC

Last night I was like a demented woman, completely focused on shiny, pretty things. Something had slightly upset me and I'm afraid the crafty items took the brunt of it! I'm sure they must be feeling a little battered and bruised this morning. lol. Nevertheless it was a very productive evening with 8 cards made in total. I even managed to finish my DT item for a week on Saturday! How's that for being organised? Maybe I should get upset more often?

So, today there will be 2 posts, showing 2 cards (one in each post) covering 3 challenges.

This is the first of the 2 posts today and this card covers 2 challenges:

Papertake Weekly challenge has a 'simply sparkling theme. with all the sparkles on the image, the glitter paper and ribbon and the additional sparkle added to the brads I think this qualifies for that challenge too.

Last, but certainly not least, the abc challenge is P for Pink. Well, it's about time I made a card with some pink on it. I seem to have got stuck in autumn, blues and earthy colours recently.

Like the new watermark? It matches the cherry blossom on this blog (you may need to zoom in to see it properly). Thanks Jo!

Items used:
DCWV The Floral Stack. Cream Glitter Paper, Pickin Apples Stamp, Making memories flowers, Leone Em Ash branch (had to use that punch again!)Pink gems, glitter ribbon, brads covered in diamond stickles Watercolour pencils, 3D foam pads, brown ink, black StayzOn.

The only thing left to do is add the sentiment. I haven't quite decided if this is a birthday, sorry or friend card yet, what do you think?
