A Pink Thank You for a Hairdresser

 Good afternoon. Well we are all back to normal this week in the Simpson household - Jack went back to school today and John is away in New York until the end of the week so here I am all by myself - again :-(

On the bright side though it does mean I have lots of guilt free crafty playtime :-)
My card I would like to share with you today was a request from a friend for a pink thank you card for a hairdresser. 
Here's what I came up with:

I started making the background - using a Creative Expressions flower mask - I embossed first and then spritzed with some mica powder and then inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
Shame I can't get the photo to show the shimmer that the mica powder gives IRL :-(
 The image is from Precious Moments Colouring Pages - available here coloured with PM's

 Bunting created using co-ordinating cardstock, bakers twine and BG alphas.

Challenges I would like to enter:
