Make A Wish

Not fifty shades of pink here but there are several which are not showing up like I had hoped, especially in the design paper.  Must be because they are mostly pastels.  If I could every learn how to use my Paint Shop Pro program it might help to enhance my photos.  That's another project for my to-do list, or should I say "Bucket List"

I had so much fun making this for my great-granddaughter's birthday.  The theme for her first birthday party is "Make A Wish".  Not a lot of time to chat so I'm going to make this a short post and list the challenges that inspired me:

Hello there fellow Pink lover. Isn't it fabulous about the launch of In the Pink? I stopped in for a closer look at your card. I'm linked at #1 this week, I'd love it if you stopped by to say hello.

Hi Carol, this is so cute, I have this image as well and used it for a special little girl's birthday card as well. I love what you've done here. Gorgeous lace trim too.
