OK, here comes the rare moment - I actually LOVE this card

This card is smaller than my usual 6x6, it's actually 5.25x5.25. Mainly because I wanted to use kraft base and that was the only pre-scored size I was able to find in Kraft.

It was made for Tickled Pink Challenge and next weeks theme is BLING. So I sprinkled flat-backed gems quite generously all over the card. The challenge requires a use of  Tickled Pink image.
I used Mollie Mittens with Flower and coloured her with Prismas on kraft card. The sentiments are a cool postage stamp rubber stamp set and die combo from Whimsy Stamps.
The flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima. Papers are from my latest Basic Grey favorite line - Curio, all sponged with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain.
