I think I might have made a pink card I like...

I never thought I would say that ever!

There are so many challenges around ,or at least it felt that way using pink I decided to have another try, this is my 3rd attempt at getting it right and I can't believe I actually like a pink card I've created.
I used a swet magnolia Tilda image that the very kind Jude from craft international sent me and as she has tight curly hair decided to put some darker skin tones to use, I also thought it would off set the pink, see method in my madness, don't mean that quite as it sounds though my son keeps telling me I'm loco which though I don't know much spanish even I can work out he thinks I'm a bit more loopy than usual.

I used a pearl pink base card and some pink foil card to mount Tilda on and then some daisy and dandilion paper, it has daisy type flowers on and I'm a sucker for daisies. In the corners I decided to try something different for me and instead of mounting pattern paper in this case forever friends paper on glitter card I did it the other way around, I think its quite subtle but effective. The large flowers are some I rescued off a card mum had recieved and Dad was about to despatch to the dustbin, he really does think I'm loco! The ribbon is Kanban from the music and dance kit as a re the mini gems.

Now the fun bit which challenges to enter?
