In The Pink

I totally forgot I had these cards to share with you, I was asked to create a series of cards using the Pantone colour for 2011, Honeysuckle, for Creative Card Magazine. It was the perfect colour for me to use as I do love pink and there were so many different occasions that it could be used for.
To create this one I experimented with some paper doileys, I inked the edges with distress inks, cut them in half and then pleated them around the inside of cut out circle. I stuck a piece of hambly overlay onto the inside of the card to cover the hole.

Well I am now back at work which felt really strange for the first few days, our unit has temporarily been rehomed since I have been off so I didn't have a clue where anything was and felt very much like a new girl! It didn't take long to get back to normal though lol. I am still only doing paper work but hopefully at the end of this week I will be allowed to do some clinical last!
