Pink or Blue?

Oddly (and I find a lot of things odd), it seems that nowadays when people speak about new babies they ask whether it's pink or blue, rather than whether it's a boy or girl, surely all new babies are kind of bright red and slimy? Or was that just mine?
One of the ladies I work with became a first-time Grannie last week, and then promptly went on holiday for two weeks (was it that stressful?), and the new baby is apparently "pink".
I took my time making a card for Grannie (well, she is sunning herself in Spain) and here's what I came up with:

The digi is from the nice lady at Pollycraft, who sadly, has decided to shut up shop on June 8th. I've used this digi before for a "blue" and it works marvellously well for either. She's coloured with Promarkers (which for some reason look a little orange in the photo, but they really were pink) and the star has been covered in Flitterglu and then gilded with flakes so it's lovely and shiny and very tactile. Other than that, very clean and simple, with just a piece of stripey paper behind.

A couple of challenges today:
Less is More - for a baby or child
Cute Card Thursday - a touch of sparkle
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - pinks, reds or creams
