Sugar Bowl challenge 56 "In the Pink"

It's that time again and this time it is the lovely Kiki's sketch with the theme PINK!
Now for those of you that know me, know I am not a pink person so I had to have a real good rake around in my craft room....and there is still the mess to prove it!
(I had to dig down deep for pink!)
This is my design:

I am loving these digi images over on Funky kits home of Sugar Nellie. 
This image is called Bambino and is simply gorgeous to colour in, I have used my copics and a little stickles.
The paper is from Joanna Sheen pastel plaid.
Martha Stewart deep edge punch Blossom eyelet.
Stitching on my machine, flowers, satin ribbon and metal embellishment from my stash.
The sketch to work from from Kiki is this:

As you can see I have not followed Kiki's sketch to the letter, sorry Kiki. 
I did start to but I then had a step back and decided on a "less is more approach". 
For me personally I feel the card works better this way, but it is my choice....
I would love to see what you come up with.

On to the important fact...up for grabs this time as it is a "think pink" theme,
a bow of pink crafting goodies for the winner.....ooooo.....very girlie!
But remember as I often say,
you've got to be in it to win it!
Happy crafting. x

Morning Erika, fantastic and i completely agree less is definately more. I need to make 2 baby cards one is for the grandparents so after seeing this I must use this image! Loving the paper you have used.

Have a super day!

This is so beautiful Erika.
Love this image, so sweet! And for someone who doesn't 'do' pink you've nailed it perfectly.
I agree with you, I much prefer the less is more approach.

Love Elaine xx
