Welcome to the For The Love of Pink Blog Hop in aid of Gill McCall's birthday!  (Happy Birthday Gill!)

There are so many great crafters taking part in todays blog hop, I hope you hop into all their blogs and see their fantastic creations!

The purpose of this blog hop is to introduce you to other like-minded crafters around the world.  Not only do you get to make new crafty friends, but you can also get lots of inspiration, advice and support.

You should have got to my blog by coming from Jenn P's blog.  If not, hop along to Gill McCalls's blog, she is hosting this fabulous pink blog hop and you can find out more about the event from there.

So, to take part in the blog hop, you have to make something PINK!  Surprise surprise!  Both Gill and I love pink things, so it wasn't difficult to make something for this hop.

I decided to make this card:

To make this card, i used A4 white card stock and made a gatefold card.  I covered the front gates with black and pink card, leaving a narrow border around each.  I used 3D foam to attach both the pink and black card.  I used a Debbi Moore CD (Pretty In Pink) to print out the black and pink patterned paper and then attached with dssst.    I used a piece of pink ribbon, stuck to the back of the card and to the left hand side.  For the main image, I cut out a cupcake shape from a Papermania template.  I cut the icing part out on pink card and covered with glossy accents.  For the cupcake case, I scored a piece of black card and attached to the cupcake shape with pinflair glue.  Once the glossy accent was set, I coloured pieces of card candy with brown Pro-Markers and attached them to the icing.

To complete the card, I attached clear adhesive gems on each corner of the card.  I also matt and layered black and pink card together and used a silver Happy Birthday peel off.  I then attached these with 3d foam to the top left and bottom right hand corners of the card.  I tied the pink ribbon to keep the gate fold card closed.  (Sorry the photo's a bit dark.)

So now it's time to see what Linda has to offer in the For The Love Of Pink blog hop.  Make sure you hop around all the participants blogs, there's some fab creations to be seen!

Thanks for hopping by.  Please leave me a comment, I love to get feedback.  And remember to hop by all the participants!

Take care,

Lisa xx
