I couldn't wait to design a card for today's special hop!


Let's start at the bottom and work our way up, there is so much Pinkfresh goodness to chat about!  I layered a panel from the Let Your Heart Decide - Quirk + Be You - Brave.  The peachy coral combo has me so excited for SPRING!

The bouquet is from the Let Your Heart Decide Layered Sticker pack.  Have you seen the Let your Heart Decide Leatherette Stickers?!  That's the black and white striped border and the aqua floral sticker.  These have such incredible texture!!!!!


I made a frame from my cardstock stash and adhered a vellum panel behind it.  I heat embossed the You make life sparkle from the Magical Unicorn set in black.  I added the Happy Birthday from the Pause for applause set.

My card was inspired by the Pinkfresh Studio April Challenge:


Now it is time to hop over to Ashley's blog!  In case you get lost along the way, here's today's hop listing:
