Hello there! Isn't it fabulous about the launch of In the Pink? I stopped in for a closer look at your card. I'm linked at #1 this week, I'd love it if you stopped by to say hello.

I love what you've done here Gay, stunning flourish and for someone who doesn't usually use pink you've chosen beautiful shades of it. I like the sponging to soften the flourish.

Cheers,
Kasey ~ in Oz
