Seeing Pink.

This is the second card made for my swap partner with the theme Use a stick pin. Again now sent safely on its way to Australia.
I have used a Cuttlebug 'Concentric Hearts ' die cut and a SU Embosslits 'Beautiful Wings'
die cut. Both using snippets of card from my buddy Miss Di.
The butterfly was just crying out to have antenna added so they became my scaled down stick pins. Ribbon and bling from my stash. Card was in a pack of ten that I came across in the local 99p store and I rounded the edges to give a better finish.  Sentiment is a clear stamp by Kanban.

Totally Gorjuss:  Anything goes with Pink.

Stickpin antennae are excellent choices for your butterfly. I also adore how you used your stickpin on the vintage lady's hair. Great cards. So much better than store bought. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

A simple card...but a beautiful one! The gleam of the heart & butterfly just sparkle. Inspired touch with the antenna pens! Reinforces what I said in my earlier comment about your talent for 'seeing the unusual' and making it 'the beautiful'. TFS
