What an absolutely adorable card you've made! I love how the sentiment so perfectly reflects the scene. I also really like your shades of pink and how some are vibrant and some are perfectly subtle. You've done a remarkable job of creating a wonderful feeling with this card, so thank you for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
