TPE Challenge - Pink and Black

the Pink Elephant challenge this week is Pink and Black, so I came up with this card. The birdcage and bird are from the cricut lite cartridge Bloom, cut at 4" in black, and shadowed with white.

I added a tiny spray of white roses which I swiped with a pink copic marker to add a tinge of pink. I left the card blank without a sentiment, as it comes under the 'useful for so many occasions category'. In case the lady from Starbucks who takes her caged bird out for a coffee is reading this, this one's for you honey.

I am beginning the big clean up/packing marathon ready for our return to the UK next week. I went out for dinner with my Thursday craft group, we all sit around making cards for about seven hours each week, and they had gone out and purchased a shop card which they all signed for me. Lovely thought gang, and much appreciated, but, ermm, what exactly are we making all those cards for every week? Mind you, they did write 'handmade card' on the envelope to try and fool me........................I will miss them and our Thursday get=togethers when I am back in Blighty.

So funny that your friends tried to pull off that store bought card! Bloom cart is on the top of my list, so I'm hoping my WM will have it soon! Safe travels to Blighty.
