Hi lovely bloggers, friends, and followers - I'm sure you all know that Valentine's Day is almost here! 
Our challenge at In The Pink this fortnight is - you guessed it - PINK VALENTINE!
 In order to have a chance to be chosen as a Perfect Pinkie, please remember to use lots of PINK on your creation, plus the required challenge element. 
You can find out who our "Distressed" Perfect Pinkies are if you pop over to the blog!

For my card I used SU Pink Pirouette and Whisper White cardstock.
The Nestie die is Fleur de Lis Squares (a lovely gift from Santa!), attached with 3-d pop-ups.
PSX stamp - Victorian Filigree Heart, inked with black Archival.
SU "Full Heart" punch, pin-pricked around the edges, curved slightly, then attached with silicone glue. 
Sentiment - two separate stamps from Anna Griffin.
My card is entered into the following challenges ~
Addicted to CAS - Code Word "heart"
Lexi's  Creations  - Valentine/Love.

Thank you for popping by, and a warm welcome to my new followers, Sylvia and Hetty.

Love and hugs ~

I love CAS cards that got that "little, special extra detail". For this card I think it's your addition of the word "You". 3 letters that really make a difference to the design! Love the softness of the colors and it's a beautiful love themed card!
