Pretty in Pink

Well my Nesties finally arrived on Friday morning - but so did my brother and his girlfriend! So ended up having to wait a wee bit longer before I could get them out and have a play. Needless to say the house is now covered in circles and scallops! Anyone need a paper coaster? I've got a few birthdays coming up, so it's as good an excuse as any to make some cards which fit with some challenges, and the first one I've made fits rather nicely with the following:

Fab N Funky - yummy, yummy, yummy
Sketch Saturday - week 125
Totally Gorjuss - Pink

And here is my entry

I particularly like the sentiment! Not sure how well those flowers are going to stand up to the rigours of the Royal Mail. (Did you notice the Nestie labels???)
The background papers are both My Minds Eye - Quite Contrary 6x6 (free with card mag a few months ago). The cupcake, flowers and strawberries are all from the Nitwit Collections, one called Hey Cupcake, and the sentiment is computer generated.

Here is the sketch I was following:

Hope you've had a good weekend!
