I love my new die.

Its so lovely...I have used it with pretty pinks and creams this time...

 So, I made this card first, then sat looking at it, thinking....
"is there enough on it? "
and I couldn't decide.
Now though, seeing the photo, I like it...

But, a few hours ago, I thought it needed more. 
So I added more....

 (close up)

But I think I like this one too. 
Well, this is how it looks now!
I added some punched flowers. leaves and butterflies...
and the odd gem here and there!

Which do you like best?

I like both of them actually. Two completely different looks, but both very very nice.

Hello there fellow Pink lover. 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.

While I like both of your versions of your card, I think the second one certainly has stepped it up a notch. Gorgeous die.

Cheers,

I can totally see why you love your new die, its beautiful but I may be biased as I love anything with birds or butterflies, but either way your card is lovely and so pretty in pink and cream. Thanks so much for sharing this with us and playing along at The Poodles Parlour and Good Luck!

Hello there,
Fabulous pink creation, love it.
Isn't it great to be able to use pink freely and not keep it as a guilty pleasure. lol
