Make it Pretty at Crafty Catz

Good morning, once again the week has flown past and It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Catz. This week it's our lovely and super-talented Janette's turn to host, she's picked the theme of 'make it pretty' which is  a perfect  choice for  the sweet images by All Dressed Up, one of this this week's lovely sponsors - 

and  Crafty Ribbons our other sponsor for this challenge

The team were given some beautiful ADU images to use but I chose to colour up a sweet image I was lucky to win a while ago and have been itching to use! Play Day is available here, isn't she sweet!!! I've used my copics to colour, very old papers from stash, a pretty spotted ribbon, the border is a much loved but long neglected Martha Stewart punch, there was a time that every card I made sported this border! The sentiment is part of a Polkadoodles stamp set.
The Crafty Catz girls have produced some stunning cards this week...they really are pretty, so I hope you can find the time to take a look, I'm sure you'll be inspired to play along! 
Thanks for looking
enjoy the weekend

What a fabulous fun image and such lovely colours, great background papers and lovely dies. I am trying so hard to use things that I have had for a long time instead of buying new, mostly papers and dies.
Have a lovely weekend.
