It's Live! Charisma Cardz Challenge #1

I have been so excited waiting for today. I thought it would never arrive. At last the new challenge blog 'Charisma Cardz Challenge' is live. I am honoured to be their first guest designer. Carly has set this challenge blog up and she has also set the very first challenge. The theme is


Ooooh! Don't we just love pink? Come on everyone, nip over to the challenge blog and join in the fun. We can't wait to see your wonderful pink creations.

My card was inspired by the many acetate cards that I have seen. I love making acetate cards but they really are difficult to photograph. I have a little surprise on the inside of my card and have just managed to get a decent picture of it. Underneath the pink spotty ribbon is a pull-out of 4 ovals all linked together that contain a little poem on them.

Items used:

Papermania Sweet Nothings Acetate
Pink Card
Whiff of Joy Melinda's Heart Stamp
Ribbons, Beads, Charm, Flowers, Card Candy and Gems are all from my stash.
