Just a hint of chocolate

Donna has set this weeks challenge at Secret Crafters to use pink, turquoise and a hint of chocolate. Sorry for the rubbish photo editing, I just can't do it without a proper mouse, I still can't get to grips with the laptop one. Hmm just had another go, hope this looks better!

Pink Petticoat image, Doodlebug boutique trims, Prima flower gem

The image is another from Pink Petticoat's Pretty Lola's collection, coloured with Copics. The flower is a mix of paper ones from Sarah's Cards and one cut from chocolate doodlebug paper with a Sizzix die. The centre is a gorgeous gem ensemble from Prima, I got them in March for my birthday and this is the first time I've used one. I ran the turquoise card through the Cuttlebug using swiss dots and then mounted on pink Doodlebug paper and plain turquoise card. Oh and the flower trim is boutique trims from Doodlebug.

Sorry not very exciting post today, the heat has got to me a bit and I'm very tired. Thought I was going into labour last night but I had braxton hicks for four hours and I was in agony. Hoping for a quiet night tonight as that hospital bag ain't packed yet!
