Good morning friends!
I hope you're all enjoying this last bit of the weekend. I'll be heading off to work soon but it's been a good few days so I have no complaints. :)

I did get a bit more time to play in the crafty room yesterday and when I saw that the Farm Fresh Wednesday challenge was a photo inspiration I simply couldn't resist playing along. With all those shades of pink... especially the hot pink, I just had to pull out Creeper Abbey and got her nice and inky for this card. It was fun to not only give her some pink clothes but some great pink streaks in her hair as well... those Creepers can totally pull off this look if ya ask me! ;)
The flowers and gems were a no brainer based off the pics but I also added the bit of tulle as a nod to the tutus which I think is kinda clever. I think this is a nice mix of super girlie but with some spunky attitude thrown in.

Okay then, thanks for stopping by and I'll see ya in 24!
