Pretty in Pink!

I'm not quite sure how this card ended up being so pink...it's not a colour I like very much...and I had intended to make a card with lots of summery colours...but just couldn't get the papers to match...and before I knew it...it was all pink! lol
I followed the sketch from the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, using 'Xmouse Ornament' (replacing the snowflake with a paper flower). The papers are all from the 'Ooh La La (for Her)' collection by My Minds Eye, and I distressed the edges, and added some faux stitching to the top layers. The raffia lace is from Hobbycraft, the grosgrain ribbon (threaded through the raffia lace) and flowers are from Poppicrafts. I couldn't find a sentiment stamp the right size, so I replaced it with a few pieces of Craftwork Cards card candy.

I'm also going to enter this card into the following challenges:
