Surprise, Surprise--Pink!

I love lots of colors, but pink is my favorite.  Have to admit I wasn't sure about this card as I was stamping--thought it might be too blah.
Fortunately, I love it & hopefully the recipient will, too. I've wanted the SSS Ring Frame die for a long time & it was available at the end of the year when my gift certificate was about to expire. I'll be using it a lot! The little hearts are also new & are part of the Penny Black all my hearts die set.  Everything else is really old (except the PPP Marshmallow sequins): Brilliance Pearlescent Coral (very pink ink!), Versafine Smokey Gray, Prisma glitter & Hero Arts Valentine Flourishes.  I'm entering these challenges:  SSS Flickr #37, A Blog Named Hero & Die Cut Divas.  Thanks so much for taking time to check my blog.
