First BBQ of the year

Wow, what a great day it has been today. The sun is shining and not a cloud in the sky.  We decided to take full advantage of this great weather and have our first BBQ of the year.  Can't quite believe we managed to achieve this in March, but it was great.  

Now that we have finally moved back inside I thought I would quickly share with you all a card I made yesterday.  Apologises in advance for the photo, I cannot for the life of me get a good picture of this card which shows the pink embossing.

Supplies Used: 
Papermania - 'Birdsong' stamp set
Versamark ink
American Zing embossing powder in Pink
Black & pink card from my snippet box
Pink ribbon from my stash

Challenges Entered

For the less is more challenge I have picked the following past challenges
Week 2 - Flower or Tree
Week 15 - Embossing
Week 43- A bit of bling (the embossing powder has glitter in it)
Week 33 - Anything goes

Hope you have all had the nice weather today too.

Thanks for visiting
