Truly Scruptious #46 - Think Pink & MAWTT #74

Hi girls. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I love your visits and comments and I just hope you find something you like.
Well the snow has arrived here with a vengeance. We had a lot of snow over Saturday night/Sunday morning and have been left with a healthy covering with the forecast saying there is more on the way. Oh well a good excuse to stay in and occupy the craft room.
I made this card for the Truly Scrumptious challenge where the theme was to "Think Pink". I am also entering it into the Moving Along with the Times challenge where they want "more than one fold"The card is a multi fold card cut on the diagonal.

The image is from Lili of the Valley and is called "Little Ballerina". I coloured her using a mix of my Copics, Polychromos Pencils and some Sakura glaze. The paper is, I am afraid, an unknown I was given by my friend Alison. The sentiment is made up of a combination of two stamps - again I seem to have mislaid the details of what set they belong to. I'm not being of much help am I? The flowers and ribbon are from my stash. The whole card was sprayed with a sparkly gold.

I hope you like this card and that you might be able to find a minute to leave me a comment to give me your opinion. I enjoy reading what you have to say and find your input helpful.
I hope that the weather does not hamper what you have planned for this week and that if you have to travel you are kept safe.
Love and Hugs,
