Happy Hen Weekend!

I'm off up to Lancaster on Saturday for the hen weekend of a friend I've known all my life. We're going to a spa hotel so with a few of her friends, and her mum & sister. Should be good! It was only her birthday on Saturday, but I've just done a card for the weekend! I know she's had a busy time at work and the wedding is 3wks on Saturday so I thought I'd give her this card to tell her to enjoy herself and relax!

The image is, I believe, a Penny Black called "Primp" (I got it with my blog candy from Kate). I thought it was the perfect picture for a girls pampering weekend!! The main paper is from Daisy & Dandelion paper pack, and the gorgeous flowers were from my latest blog candy from Jude. I've used my nestie scalloped circles and deckled rectangles, some little gems and some pearl/metal brads (bought ages ago and only recently re-discovered).

Challenges I'm entering:
Pollycraft #39 - Pink AND brown plus yellow or green
The Pink Elephant # 62 - 1 image, 2 dies (nesties), 3 fave embellishments (flowers)
For Fun Challenges #8 - Encouraging card#
Quixotic Paperie #21 - Heavy Metal
Allsorts #47 - Petals & pearls
