Pretty in Pink

A card for several challenges!It was great to get back home and find a little parcel waiting on the step for me. I had been looking everywhere for a Martha Stewart Flourish punch, which I had seen used on some fabulous cards yet couldn't find one for love nor money. I thought I was in luck, when my friend Gina pointed me in the direction of a website which indicated that they had one, only to receive a call from them later to say that in fact this was not the case.
However, the lovely lady at Hobby House where I had enquired previously rang me to say that she had found one, so I bought it tout de suite!
Here I used it for the frame of the Forever Friends image, which I coloured with my very favourite Copics. The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly as is the paper, and the tiny arrow die is from Cuttlebug.
The challenges it includes are
Simon Says - Punch it
Incy Wincy - Colour Me Wonderful (Favourite colouring medium - Copics)
Pile it On - Warm Wishes
Daring Cardmakers - What's the Point? (use an arrow)
Crazy 4 Challenges - Pretty in Pink
