Reds, Pinks and Creams at Pollycraft!

Hello!  It's my turn (or my chance as AB would say) to choose the challenge this week at Pollycraft, and I chose Red, Pink and Cream.  I thought it would be reasonably easy as Red and Pink seem to go so well together these days (not like when I was little and combining red and pink clothes was the worst fashion faux pas ever!) but actually I really struggled with this one.  I guess that's what makes it a challenge though right?  Check out what my fabulous teamies came up with!

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Sew Sweet who are offering the winner a £10 voucher to spend in store.  I know what I would buy!

I decided to use Gorgeous for my card... I do think he's a very handsome monster!
The pink papers are from My Mind's Eye.... I'm not sure where the cream paper is from.  The swirly bling is from Prima.  I think the ticket sentiment is from Crate Paper and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  I have coloured Gorgeous with copics (see details below).

Here's a close-up:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Great card Arabella, I love that you chose to colour Gorgeous in pink, it really suits him. Wonderful layering and stitching of your backing papers and the red ribbon makes it pop.
