Back on your feet

Good Afternoon all. Aww its the last day of the olympics. Hasn't it been fab, I've loved every minute especially Mo getting his second gold last night.  I was screaming at the telly lol.  I hope the closing ceremony tonight goes as well as the opening one.

My card today is for one of the GPs I work with who has just had a hip replacement op.

I have followed the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday but rotated it.

Coloured with Prisma Pencils
Backing Paper - Dovecraft Back to Basics III
Punched Flower Woodware Punch
Gems and Ribbon from stash
Sentiment from computer

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
DYSU - Four Legged Friends
Top Tip Tuesday - Focus on the ribbon 
(TIP - if you have a lot of empty space on your card add a few little punched butterflies)
Sweet Stampin Challenge - Things with wings
Charisma Cardz - Flowers and Fauna
In the Pink - Fifty Shades of Pink

Hello there fellow Pink lover. Isn't it fabulous about the launch of In the Pink? I stopped in for a closer look at your card. I'm linked at #1 this week, I'd love it if you stopped by to say hello.

What a sweet Mo image you've used. Gorgeous card Debs.

I like the soft colouring of the grey with those big pink ears & the pink toes. The daisy shaped flower works well with the paper & I must admit your bow is perfect with the pink ears - love the fluffy sheer flimsiness of it.

Hello there,
Fabulous pink creation, love it.
Isn't it great to be able to use pink freely and not keep it as a guilty pleasure. lol
