Pink Carnation ...

Good evening ... I've be lucky enough to spend the afternoon crafting ... after a morning of washing and ironing I decided to treat myself to just crafting.  I'd like to share one of the cards I created (you'll have to wait a while to see the others):- 

The colour is more vibrant in real life but I just couldn't get the photograph to reflect the vivid magenta

I was inspired by the current challenge at TIME OUT where the theme is to be inspired by an item in your wardrobe!  I decided to take one of the colours from a dress that I wore to my daughters wedding:

This shows the detail of the dress
I mostly wear quite muted colours and certainly rarely wear anything (especially a dress) as vibrant as this dress  ... I first bought a navy dress which would have allowed me to blend into the background.  With encouragement from my daughter I then bought this dress which was both colourful and vibrant ... there was no blending in with the background for me! 

The sentiment I added was exactly what  I needed to do to wear the dress ... I couldn't have done it without my family's support.

These are the challenge details:
