It is time for our new challenge at
the theme this week is
I didn't think I would get this posted as I have been without an internet connection since the early hours of Saturday morning, I spent some time on the phone with the provider testing numerous connections, plugs etc, tonight I received a phone message to say it was a problem their end and they were going to reset everything but would take 48 hrs, fortunately I kept an eye on the lights on my router and noticed that it changed to solid green instead of flashing amber.
I will be visiting all my lovely friends that have left comments for me on my previous post, they are truly wonderful and so uplifting, I thank you with all my heart.
Now onto my DT card
I have used two images from sheet 409, the one of the front of my card I coloured with promarkers the image on the inside is precoloured.
I cut out the front image leaving a fine white border which I think looks so effective.  
I have gone for a pink and purple colour theme, the die I have used are a mixture of Cheery Lynn and Memory Box, I have also added a pink organza ribbon, an organza flower also some MS punched butterflies and lots of pink pearls.
I decided to have a go at making a card gift holder for this I have used a 12x12 embossed card stock, for demo purposes I have used the Daisy and Friends CD Rom and a gift card on the inside. The butterflies on the inside are punched using a SU punch. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Many thanks for taking time out to come visit me I hope to see you at the 
Whoopsie Daisy Challenge.
