Joan's Challenge Pink and White window

Good Morning Ladies,
It's Friday and the weekend is just around the corner. I will have a big ole weekend of cleaning house.
Today I am joining in on Joan's Challenge Pink and White window card. I love this challenge because it is no secret I LOVE PINK!
You can see and join in this challenge if you click this link... http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2012/06/this-weeks-challenge.html
These are the requirements...
Use pink and white
Use an embossing folder
Use a die for the opening on the front of a card
Use leaves for accents
Here is my challenge card...
 To create this card I used the scalloped rectangle spellbinders die set. I used three sizes of the die. I cut my window with the smallest die I used into the front of the card base. I then cut the next size in a pink patterned card stock from Debbie Mum Noah's Ark pad. My next layer is white textured card stock. I embossed the lower portion of this layer with a Sizzix embossing folder. I tied a sheer pink knotted ribbon just above the embossing. My leaves are cut from a Memory Box die I purchased at Joan's. I added a crystal floral sprig over the leaves. I created three rolled flowers using a Memory Box die I purchased at Joan's. To accent the leaves at the top of the card and to add centers to the flowers I used holographic rhinestones. I stamped the girl on Bristol board and colorized her using Prisma pencil, gamsol, and stickles. I popped her up.
 This is the inside of my card where I repeated the colors and scallop rectangles.
A view so you can see the window cut in the front of the card.
Thanks again Joan and Selma for a great challenge that includes one of my favorite colors!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

Love the layers. It is so soft looking. The leaf sets off the front and the pink on the inside makes the girl pretty. Thanks for the inspiration.
