Pink and Cream Challenge @ Eclectic Ellapu

Hi all you lovely crafty friends.  

It is challenge time over at ECLECTIC ELLAPU and the theme this week is PINK AND CREAM and the host of this challenge is the brilliantly talented Berni. 

I have put together a Shadow Book Card.  I was stumped at first as to what to do with it.  I just could not make up my mind so in the end I decided to put together a collage of script and pictures of Leonardo Da Vinci women - well two of them anyway. You will notice a recurrent theme of one particular woman... I absolutely adore her so she got the most coverage lol.  

I used a sentiment from one of TH Classics stamps.  The edges of all the distressed pics and pages have had tattered rose treatment.  I clear embossed one of TH women on the inside cover and used distress ink over the top.  I used a diecut butterfly, clear embossed with tattered rose over the top.  The muslin came from my stash.  The front strips on the inside round the box edge are stamped using a leaf stamp.

Anyway I think the overload of pics will show you more clearly than my babbling lol.

Anyway I hope you enjoyed your visit and please drop by my challenge blog and join in with the fun.  Hope to see you all there and please leave some love for my wonderful DT's.
