{MTSC68} Pretty in PINK!

This card was created especially for

Mercy has another terrific sketch for us to follow this week and I was amazed how quickly my card came together because all the layout work was done for me!  Gotta love that...especially after a busy weekend and full day of work on Monday! :)

For my birthday last month, my sweet daughter-in-law Jami and son Andrew gave me a gift bag full of cardmaking goodies, including three packages of these BIG beautiful paper flowers.  When I saw Mercy's sketch, I knew the flowers would be perfect!
