HIMCR Challenge # 181 ~ Use Pinks!

Happy New Year everyone.  Our first challenge of the year at HIMCR is to use Pink and then more Pink :-)

Our sponsor for this challenge is Laurie from Hiding in My Craft Room.  She will be giving away a prize to one lucky participant.

I made this card for my little granddaughter - this was her very first New Year celebration.  She woke up at midnight and celebrated with us :-)  She was all smiles and had fun grabbing for everything shiny :-) She is such a darling! :-) {Says the proud grandma :-)}

I used the Cricut Teddy Bear Parade cartridge to make this fairy.  The clock was a die cut that my SIL gave me last year and since she is en route back to Holland as this post is going live, I cannot ask her where she got it from.  But, I will and then I will come back and edit this information :-)
The shiny pink paper is from Recollections, the polka dot paper is from The Paper Studio. Corner die is from Die-namics and the lacy die is from CottageCutz.  Gems are from my stash.
I know that the paper inside of this card looks to be a different colour, but it is the same shiny darker pink paper I used on the front of the card.  For some reason, it photographed this way.  The scalloped circle is a die from Spellbinders and the corners were cut with the same die from Die-namics.  Sentiment was computer generated and hearts were punched out using a little heart punch from Michaels dollar bin :-)
So, now it's your turn to grab all your pink papers and make a project to ring in the New Year and join in our fun :-)  You have till Saturday, 10 January 2015, 2:00 am PST to link your project to the Hiding in My Craft Room blog.  We do ask that you make a new project; no back links please.
Thank you for stopping by my blog.
I wish you a very Happy Crafting Year!
