CAS-ual Fridays: Pretty in Pink

It's Friday!  Yahooo...I'm taking the day off, going to the dentist and then relaxing the rest of the day.  I'm really looking forward to a three day weekend. The three youngest have all been at show choir camp this week and they have a concert tonight.  Marcel dances through every show of Ryan's, so I can't wait to see if how he performs too!
This week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge is Pretty in Pink and is sponsored by The Ribbon Carousel.  They are giving a way a $20 gift certificate!  

My card this week is inspired by a card that my mum sent me.  I loved the bold black and pink next to each other. I used a Verve Sentiment and PTI Turning a New Leaf.  I inked off the bold line for the sentiment panel.

Here's a picture of the inspiration card.
 
Hop on over to the CAS-ual Friday's blog to play along and check out all the fabulous DT inspiration!

Pink normally scares me (not quite as much as peach) but you totally rock it! Love your inspiration point too!
