     Pinque Peacock Mary here!I am so excited to share my project with you today. After a slight mix up I still have a project to share with you today. My mailman was held hostage (not really, lol ) so I am going to show you a card with some PP products I already had on hand.
     It seems like forever since I have made a card, but, since I have a Bridal Shower to go to today, I decided to make this one and , of course, use the fabulous Pinque Peacock fancy swirls and Angel stick pins.

     This was a quick, fun card to make. I used the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge with the cut from page 37. I used the card, layer and decorative layers all cut @ 5.50". I must confess that I did this card twice. The first one I used the printed pink paper for the background with the hearts, however it looked too busy. 
     I really wanted the swirl flower and stickpins to be the main focus so I decided to go with a  solid pink background. In order to further bring out the swirl, I decided to emboss the background with a swirl embossing folder from Cuttlebug. It still needed something so I misted the card stock with Perfect Pearls. Then I decided I wanted the cut on the frame to stand out some more, so I Cut off the sides on the pink layer. This is what I mean:

     By doing it this way, it was easy to line up the layers. The printed hearts were then added to the opening. (These are the same ones left over from my "rejected" project.
     After adding the hearts, I used some Liquid Pearls and Silver Stickles to bring out the hearts. I also added some black pearl embellishment to the sides. Look how beautiful this is with the flower and stick pins! I added the pink Angel for her and the white one for him. Now I bet you are wondering what I did with the solid heart cut outs. Well, here they are:
     If you guessed that I used them on the envelope, then you are correct! This card is so easy to make and would look fabulous in the new May Release colors!!!
