Pretty in Pink

I really am trying to push SPRING the last few weeks because in the Chicagoland area, it's just not happening.  Although the weather is finally shifting to a more normal pattern and the temps are s-l-o-w-l-y climbing up, so there is hope for us.

So, today I made a pretty Springtime card in shades of pink.  I used a brand spankin' new May DIGI release (that's right, a DIGI from QKD) called New Dress by Kathy Cyr.

I had a handful of leftover pieces of patterned papers in shades of pink, so I ran with it and ended up with this card.  I love the yellow butterfly playing peekaboo and adding just a pop of color.

You can find New Dress at the QKD Shoppe, along with lots of rubber and digi's!  Have fun!
And while you're having it, ask yourself if you've ever considered becoming a design team member for QKD.  There is a Royal DT call going on right now:
