PDCC119, CAS178 - Splash of PINK!

PINK - I can't escape pink!!  When I was young it was among my favorite colors - now my favorite color is brown closely followed by green.  That is a long road away from PINK!!  However, the current challenge in the Play Date Cafe is Black/White with a splash of Pink so I gave it my best shot.
The sketch is from Clean and Simple Stamping.  The flowers (PTI) were diecut directly from the white cardstock and then backed with a piece of pink cardstock cut just a hair bigger to make the frame.  My favorite part of these flowers are the centers!  Roni has the Prima Donna Petals Die-namics die from My Favorite Things and when we stamped together on Friday I spent a great deal of time cranking out centers!  I have a plethora of dark brown centers that will be visiting some blossoms soon but I also cranked out black and dark grey as well - I'm wishing now that I did some in white/yellow.
The background was stamped with the retired Cornish Heritage Farms - Scalloped Tile Backgrounder and the sentiment is from A Muse Studio.

Great scalloped fan background, Michelle, and your splashy flowers are just the perfect touch of hot pink!
