Pink Wishes

Last one before we hit the airport!  This card (which is for this week's Colour Throwdown challenge) didn't come out anything like I planned.  Once I stamped that Hero Arts background stamp it all changed.  I won the stamp earlier this year and thought it was a bit fussy for my taste but once I saw it on paper today I fell in love with it and I wanted it to take centre stage.
