1.2.3. April challenge

Here is my take on the April challenge.
Im not one who usually  does pinks, but i had so much fun with this one, I may have to do more layouts in pink, now that i have started.

My base card is hot pink
  I have got out of my stash, some tapestry squares sheet ( that i found at a  op shop)   and placed it over the card stock and  added texture paste over it.
When dry,  I  have then sprayed Kaisers New  mists, iridescent spray ink  with  pink shimmer,
 next came  inking the  window frame, with Dew Drop Versa magic  Cloud White ink
I recently went to  a workshop, held by my friend Alison Bevis in which they i did  a card classes.
when i received the bag,  i did what the teacher told us,  to do with it, it wasn't til i got this challenge, that i thought i would pull the bag out  from the card and only use  half of it , to make a curtain from the other half of the bag,

The word LOL is  from a sticker sheet and i have placed glossy accents over it  and placed it with some chipboard, ( which I have plenty of) &  wound some white roses around it.

As you can see, i just love little delicate flowers, again, i have used the Kaiser mists on most of the flowers and sprinkled some white  and soft pink flowers  around it.

the leaves are chipboard and i again have first  used the white  ink and then added  green around the edges and did it lightly inside, and then  used a black pen to make lines.

With the stems of the flowers, i have used a small paint brush to make  it twirly and placed some Kaiser  sticker sheets green flowers and a dragon fly with a clear bling over it.
