FTTC52D Silke's "Think Pink" challenge

I am doing a sample for Silke's "think pink" challenge (FTTC52D)! Please check out the Flourishes Anniversary Celebration post to find out how to play along!
I started this monochromatic pink card with the Flourishes sweet pea stamp set, stamping on wc paper and embossing with clear ep. I colored the flowers with Tombow markers and sponged with baby pink ink around the edges while it was still in the Labels 4 die. It's layered with pretty in pink (also cut with the Nestabilities Labels 4) and matted with a scrap piece of pink dp that was cut out with the top note die. A pretty in pink card stock base, some blush pearls by Kaiser, and some pink satin ribbon and this card was done.
Thanks for the great challenge Silke and thanks for stopping by!
