Pretty In Pink



Pink is NOT my favorite color. It ranks probably dead last. I have nothing in my closet that is even close to a pale shade of pink. You see, I have a fair complexion and avoid all pale colors. A few years ago I received a pale pink sweater for my birthday (not from anyone who knew me very well) and I wore it a couple of times trying to give it a chance. But after someone asked me not once but twice if I was feeling ill I decided it wasn't a color for me. But I love using pink in my paper creations. There is something so serene about the color and particularly in sweet peas. We plant some on our farm each and every year. I anxiously await the seed catalogs in spring to make sure I get the best varieties (antique of course.) This image and sentiment from Flourishes are perfect. With a little help from my trusty Copics they pop! I hope you and yours are having a pretty in pink kinda day (minus the sickly comments... LOL).
