03/15/2017 Update: Top Three winner at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #212.
I like the color pink but it is a color I rarely wear. I have never used it in home décor (I had no baby girls) but I love to use it when making cards. The layout of this bright pink card was inspired by a sketch. Using several cutting methods was the result of a challenge theme and the colors came from the scrap of patterned paper on the front. I can always use birthday cards, so it was also well-suited for the two birthday challenges.
