WHY AM I USING SO MUCH PINK LATELY?

Hi sweet friends! I was looking at my cards and realize I have used a lot of pink lately. I don’t usually use that much pink, but I have decided it is a great color to use.  So girlie and pretty.
This card is for three challenges: Really Reasonable Ribbon, CAS-ual Fridays, and Splitcoaststampers CAS157 sketch. I’ll give you the details after the card:
RRR42
I used white card stock and the masking technique. First, I used my Memory Box Quinn Flourish and heavy card stock to make a template. I then used Pixie Dust VersaMark ink to create the BG.

RRR asked for Pink and Brown, so I cut the flourish again using brown card stock (Craftwell Molasses). The strip of brown of brown going across the card is paper ribbon. A Prima flower, pink gingham check ribbon and the Mother sentiment from Operation Write Home completes the card.

AROUND MY HOUSE
Camellia
Camellia2
This is my Camellia bush! Aren’t those flowers just gorgeous? Oh, yeah….did I say I love flowers? LOL it is hard to make a card without flowers and hard to be around my house and not see them.  These Camellia’s are especially loved by me because they bloom in the winter when everything is so dreary.  They are a beautiful Christmas red.
Now for those challenges:
Really Reasonable Ribbon: The theme for Challenge #42 is Pink & Brown with Ribbon. This is the inspiration photo:
