Cas-ual Pink Diva!

At the end of last week I spent some time blog surfing to get new ideas and inspiration. I had a lot of fun and was amazed at how many super creative people there are out there and how much passion there is to share our love of all things crafty.
Whilst surfing away I came across a card I loved on A Passion for Papertrey. The cards was by one very talented crafter Cara. You can check out her blog and her card here. The card I loved was her second flower card and I decided I would 'case' this card for the 'pretty in pink' challenge set by Cas-ual Fridays.
I am a 'purple loving' girl but for many years I was an 'all things pink' girl. So I do love a pink challenge! I also wanted to enter a new challenge for me on Divas Design, here they challenged us 'to die for' (use a die cut). I just had to link pink and diva.........and why not!!

To start I die cut the bold pink flower then used a mix of 'the garden of life' stamps from PTI to make the flowers in different shades of pink. The centre one I have cut out and layered onto the die cut-this has 'angel pink' memento ink in the centre. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches. I used the PTI linen impression plate although it seems my photo has not shown this! And to finish a few different shades of pink gems.......and you have a 'pink diva' card.........I already know which one of my diva friends is getting this!!
