All in Pink

Two posts for me today. I wanted to join the challenge at Joan's Gardens and they are wanting a card with these requirements:
Lots of layers
Color theme of pink and white
Dimensional flowers
Use a rectangle and an oval

My card was so much fun to make and one reason was because I cleaned my craft room and got organized...AGAIN! Seems as if I make one or two cards and you would think a whirlwind came through. It's so nice to have everything in its place and I can work without stress...aaahhhhhhhh

As you can see, I cut out my dies so the frames would let my dp and sentiment show through.  After cutting my flower pot, I used my scoring board to make lines on it, making it a bit more realistic.

The sentiment I used is from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company and the set is Blessings. All this pink and white reminds me of Spring and Easter and I'm looking forward to both.  The rest of my recipe is below.



Recipe:
Paper: white cardstock, DP is Cloud 9 Design-Pocket Full of Paisleys
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Martha Stewart hydrangea punch, Spellbinders large-classic-long scalloped rectangle die, Spellbinders large oval classic die, Spellbinders Nestabilitie Flower Pot, Martha Stewart scoring board
