Catkins in pink

Good afternoon –

The other day I was so hopeful that our Internet would be sorted out, and we wouldn’t have any more problems with it.   The man came, tested it and said there wasn’t a problem – so I explained – in French – that the problem had started at the time they were working on the local cabling.     Our Internet provider has said she isn’t closing the file, and has it listed as – a work in progress – but we don’t seem to be making any progress.

 Today I’m posting a card using a LOTV image – Catkins.   I coloured her with Promarkers and glittered her wings with Stickles Crystal.   I cut around the image with a circle die and added frantage to the edge of the circle.   I embossed a piece of white card with a honeycomb effect stencil and then embossed it lightly with a pale pink ink pad.   I coloured the heart corner and precious stars dies with a brighter pink ink pad and I added dots of pink liquid pearls to the flower in Catkins’ hair

 Fingers crossed the Internet will play nicely, as I try to link my card to several challenges.
