In the Pink - Just For You

 Good  morning. Quick share from me today as I am hoping to be able to get my hair cut today without having booked an appointment. I figured that as it's the middle of the week I should be ok and I don't have a 'usual' hairdresser so will be happy to go anywhere that can fit me in :-) 
So today's card is one that I made for my MiL's birthday that was at the weekend and I'm pleased to say that it was liked very much.
I took my initial inspiration for my card from this week's challenge at Penny Black Saturday 
which could be an image that involves movement or  moving house etc.
 My MiL loves the PB hedgies so I used this one that involves movement as the little cuties deliver their pressie.

I am really pleased with how the colouring of the hedgies has turned out on this one :-) 
Coloured with PM's
Here's a close up of the image:

This also used:
Long neglected Spellbinders Fleur de Lis pendants - as the mat behind the image
Design Papers - Pink Petticoat  - Stripes and Dots
Ribbons from stash
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Leaves - Marianne Createables
 Heart Gems - from stash
