Pink, Purple and Pearls

I do not use the colors pink and purple very often but this Sassy Cheryl image "Grace" called out for them. Made this birthday card for her challenge. Used pink base card with purple mat embossed with Swiss Dots EF. Colored image with pencils and OMS and glitter pens. Stamped sentiment and added some glitter. Added some embossed flowers to the edge and organza pink ribbon. Used pearls for earring and on corners. In a drawer, I found this forgotten safety pin that I had threaded with pearls and added it to the corner.
