CUC challenege - Everyone has Favourites!!

Hi all - I really can't believe how the time is flying by, it's nearly March but hopefully that means that we may get some warmer weather and I might start to feel better - my health always seems to be worse when it's colder.  Anyway on to this weeks challenge with Craft US Crazy

Our challenge theme we have for you this time is FAVORITE COLOR/FAVORITE EMBELLISHMENT!!

We have a lovely and always fun sponsor with us this challenge! The one and only...

And DIGITAL DELIGHTS will be giving the following prize to our winner....
Well I have loads of favourites but I chose to do something a little different so here we go ...

So I have used pink and white which I love but don't use on cards very often.  I have also used my trusty Spellbinders .  The backing paper is made by embossing with a large impressabilities and then inking through like a stencil. I used the lace doily motifs and accents, which I cut and then layered up (oh and I lightly inked through them too) and I used the little banner type one to stamp my sentiment into.  I used pink and white ribbon and added a couple of bows and my favourite hatpins.  I then made some roly flowers with hemp tape which I cut in half, then feathered the edges and rolled them up - I just love these little flowers and I added an organza ribbon rose on the top.  I'm not sure you can see it too well but on top of the layered Spellbinders I added a little acetate butterfly which is white embossed.  This card was super simple to make and I think it looks kinda nice ;o)
I hope you join us over at Craft US Crazy as you can do any craft - cardmaking, scrapbooking, altered art or anything else you fancy!  Pop over to the blog and check out the design team's inspiration - I hope to see you there!
