Pretty in Pink

This is the card I made for the Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge 228.
I was trying to think of a name for it if you've any suggestions let me know.
The image is a Lily from Gina K's  Elegant Flowers.   These flowers are one of my favourites (apart from the stamens which are a pain!) I've taken lots of photos of them and often use one in place of my photo on social networks.
Seems like I haven't been out much the last couple of weeks so I really need to go pick up some new patterned paper. I couldn't decide what to use for this sketch until I found a block I'd picked up in the bargain bin in Spotlight. It has these very bright colours that I thought I might use for kids cards.  I wanted to try my Gina K stamps so thought this would be fine.  
I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the plain pink with the Birds and Swirls folder and then lightly rubbed over with white chalk.  The green and pink second block has just had a border embossed on one end. I used the Swiss Dots folder to emboss the third block and the stamped image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink which I then clear embossed. I used my Copics to colour the Lilies, backed them with plain pink and used 2 gold brads to finish off before mounting it with foam tape.
I've just decided to call it Pretty in Pink....... what do you think?
Walshie is home today so I'm being organised!  The kettle has been on more than off!! 
 Not that I'm complaining you understand........
Have a great day!
