In the Pink

Since the wind storm that hit last Saturday, it has been raining and the temps have dropped from 80 to 60.  Now I am in long pants, sweatshirt, sox, and have even turned on the wallboard heater in my craft room.  Crazy. So is our summer gone?  Will we get an Indian summer after this week?  I sure hope so. Even though Fall is my favorite time of year, I'm not ready to give up summer.
So many of our flowers were destroyed in the storm (up to 60 mph winds).  All the dahlia plants are broken and the gladiolas are on the ground.  I sure wasn't ready to say goodbye to all those pinks and purples.  That is probably why I took on some of the pink challenges for this card.

I used #272 sketch at Sketch Saturday
The flower is a Hero Arts digital image from the Poetic Petals Printables set and is colored with Copics.
This card gave me the opportunity to us my new Spellbinders Happy Birthday Garland Die D Lites. Thank goodness for my Silhouette Pick Me Up tool.  Those little hearts are TINY!
Also used is a circle from the Dienamics Circle Stax, a Spellbinder Scalloped Circle, and a Cuttlebug embossing folder, all cut and embossed with my Cuttlebug.
