Pretty In Pink using die cuts

What lovely Easter weather we are having here in NW England, sunny with blue skies , bit of a cold wind but I'm not complaining. Went to my local craft shop yesterday , bought some lovely new stash , then went to the antique shop and bought some pretty china to add to my collection.
My card is very girly and pink I must say , I went all out with my pretty dies . I used Marianne dies , creatables LR0300,that creates the ornate top of the card , a Marianne parasol die  and a Marianne bird house die . The out pink circle is a desiree die and the word dies are tattered lace.
I've added a white doily a bird and heart embellishment all from Hobby Craft and added detail with liquid pearls. The gingham paper is craft creation 12x12. The image with the rose is cut from 12x12paper , secret garden from graphic 45.

challenges entered :
Marianne design : anything goes using at least 3 Marianne dies
Natalie and Amy : embossing (I've dry embossed all my die cuts)
Fusion : photo inspiration
the corrosive challenge  : pretty pastels

Off to do the ironing , all the Spring /Summer wear I've washed and dried, never mind I'll watch create and craft whilst doing it.

enjoy the rest of the Easter break and happy crafting.janex

What a lovely design, the decorative border you've used for the top makes this card look extra special. I'm not a pink girl, but this design is perfect in pink!
