Pretty in Pink

Remember that movie? Oh how I loved Molly Ringwald's character! I started to color up this Hats Off Anya and realized that I wasn't matching her to any papers. Oops! Fortunately I came across this stash that had the perfect colors in it, so I went with a birthday theme, then tilted the die cut so it would show a bit more. I also added these mini handmade flowers which are super fun and easy to make:

ETA: The link is now working for Nina's flower tutorial! Sorry about that, I was on DH's laptop last night instead of mine. ;)
I found the directions on my friend Nina's blog a while ago (thanks Nina!!). Mine is a smaller version for the space, the larger ones are so beautiful as a focal point. And with this card, I am entering the following challenges:

Farm Fresh WOW Challenge: Spring Colors
Sweet Stamps: Recipe - 1 ribbon, 2 DP, 3 gems (in each flower center)
Our Creative Corner: Handmade flowers, ribbon, bling (flower centers)
Stamping Vacation: Pick 3  Challenge (circle, swirl, anything pink)
Simply Create: Do It Yourself (sketch & flowers)

Thank you so much for coming by, have a beautiful Thursday everyone!

♥ & Aloha,

I just love your little flowers! They are so much simpler and to me, cuter than the ones in the tutorial you referenced. Thanks for playing the OCCC last week. Sorry I'm late visiting!
