Pretty in pink :)

Heee my mojo was in full swing today and I just LOVE how this card turned out! :)

The little bear is an older stamp (I think) from Penny Black, but was one of my January sale bargains.  I got
my watercolour pencils out for the first time in aaaages, I'd forgotten how much I love them!  I used several of the pink pencils to make splatters on my card, and some diamond bling to finish.

Is it just me has problems with 'random'?  I faffed about with these diamonds for a long time before I finally stuck them down.  I think I have a touch of OCD where my cards are concerned (unfortunately this doesn't extend to housework or ironing Hahaha)

How sweet! I love your teddy and your design. The splats are a great addition.

I don't think I know anyone OCD when it comes to ironing or housework. Ha

I am so with you on the housework and ironing front, but find like you that I can't be free and easy with my cards!

Fabulous creation. I love how you created the pink splatters and the little teddy is really cute.

I totally adore your card it's so sweet. I love the papers you've used and your colouring is perfect! The stamp really works well with the sketch you've used, to me it looks like the butterflies could almost float up into the paint splats.

I'm with you on the "random" thing. I think trying to create a seemingly random pattern is really difficult as you don't want it to look "created". (If that makes any sense?)

Thanks so much for joining in with my challenge at CCM&M.
