tickled pink

Hello everyone! I am finally particiapting in Embellish Magazine's latest challenge. I have wanted to make a card from day one, but I just couldn't come up with the right thing. Then today, I made two Embellish cards! Here is the challenge:
I love this challenge, not only for the gorgeous colors but also because this cause is dear to me. I lost my beloved grandmother to breast cancer almost ten years ago. Two weeks after she died, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Ten years later my Mom is now a two time breast cancer survivor.

I made this card with my grandmother in mind. She was always joking around and having fun. She loved beautiful flowers. And, I don't think she would have minded some nice bling also! The cute phrase "tickled pink" just seemed perfect. I also love this gorgeous and delicate flower too. (Please scroll up for the card with my Mom in mind.)I think this card is the perfect blend of Hero Arts, American Crafts and Papertrey Ink. I love these three companies, and I think they complement each other so well!

Also, please go over and vote for me (Kelly Alvarez) at Torendi! Help me get on the Torendi design team! I want this so much! Thank you!!!! Gracias!!!!
