Sentimental Sundays ~ Pink, Red and White

It's me!!!! The little pest again. :-)
Well you've already had a sneak preview of this card as I used this image in three of my tutorials the other week, so it won't have the same wow factor but now you get to see it in its setting. :-)
This week the challenge at Sentimental Sundays is a color challenge:
Yup, you guessed it (seems to be a popular one this Feb)
Red, Pink and White.
Normally I would be loathe to put red and pink together, but this image was perfect. Pink dress, red cardinal and it was done. It just works.
I hope it doesn't look Valentiney cos its not a valentine card, just a friendship card.


Photo inspiration for my card:

Her skin has beautiful colour, forehead and neck makes it perfect in my eyes. Apple in her lunch box look yummy.
