Bad Hair Day!!

Good Morning All,
Yay - it's Friday!!!  Only four more days until Louise comes home - can't wait cos I am really missing her. Contact has been very limited due to China being such a long way away but she did text her partner yesterday to say that all is going well, although she had a hard day trekking on an old and very high part of the wall - rather her than me :0)

Today I want to share a card with you that I have made for the challenge over at In The Pink - Pink Plus One.  I had this image coloured for their last challenge but just could not get my mojo working so saved it for this challenge instead!!

This gorgeous image is from A Day For Daisies and is called Bird's Nest and I love it!!! It was such fun to colour. I have gone with black as my Plus One - just love pink and black together on a card. I have added little pink gems to the die cut wreath but they are not showing up too well I'm afraid.

Close up view.

Medium - Promarkers and chalks
Paper - Papermania Capsule Collection
Die cut circle - Memory Box "Catalina Wreath"
Gems and ribbon - stash
Card - cut on the Grand Calibre using Go Kreate Frame "Frilly #4"

Well, that's all from me for today.  Off now to take the dog back home - think she is missing Louise as well :0(
Thank you so much for looking.
