In the Pink Fiona Loves Flowers

Good morning to all my special friends and followers. I'm back today with an exciting post. I was so pleased to have my card selected as one of The Perfect Pinkies in the In The Pink Challenge last time. I was then asked if I would like to be the Guest Designer for their two challenges this month. I was absolutely delighted as I don't put my cards in many challenges but when I do this is always one of my favorites.

So today is the first of the challenges and the theme is Pearls clearly made for me as its one of my favorite embellishments. I decided to use a Stampingbella stamp I've had ages but never used for my first GDT card. I must have been saving it all along for a special occasion.that's my story anyway.
