Thinking of You for Just Us Girls Color Week

This is my card for this week's Just Us Girls Challenge #281.  This is such a pretty color combo, I just had to play along.
My card base and mat are MFT Natural CS.  The white panel is embossed with LifeStyle Crafts Courtyard 1 EF.  The sentiment from SU Sincere Salutations (retired) is stamped in SU Night of Navy ink.   The mat is cut with Spellbinders Label 17 die.  I traced the inside of the die on the white and hand cut it.  I did some doodling around the edges with a marker.  The flower is cut from SU Pink Pirouette with MFT Layered Rose dies.  I shaped the petals with my needle nose pliers (a technique a saw a couple of years ago, but can't remember where).  The center is cut with a die from MFT Prima Donna Petals die from Night of Navy CS, as well as the MFT Leaf-filled Flourish.

I am also linking my card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes.
