Pretty in Pink

Hey everyone it is Monday again and I am so not liking it. Oh well I guess.

Here is my first card this week. Hopefully there will be more, since my husband is out of town on work I should have ample crafty time after the kids go to bed.

Well this card is made for several challenges and while normally I am super critical of my work, this card I am soooo super duper pleased with. The image was gifted to me from my fab friend, Dee, and I was so excited to work with it. The other part of this card that makes me super happy is that I finally got to use the punch out from my wedding invitations, that would be the light grey and white monogramed rectangle behind the image. I have been holding onto these for 7 yrs hoping to use them for something.

Here is the list of challenges:
