Think Pink

Hi there.. i can hardly believe it is already Friday. Geee this week flew for me. Time for a fabulous sketch to check out over on the Friday Sketcher blog were my dear friend Tanja is hosting this week.
I would like to kept it short and sweet about my card. The only thing i would love to draw your attention to is that i always look for ways NOT to use Prima Flowers. If i have accomplished a cute card without using flower.. iam happy. I guess it is my personal challenge. With this one i was able to use up some scraps of the pricey Stampin up Taffeta ribbon.

 Do you also love those new cuties??? Than hop on over to the Motivet DT blog, get inspired and leave a comment for your entry at a weekly drawing to win 5 Doraline stamps!!! Gotta love this! "Think Pink" thank you Stephanie :-)
