Pushing yourself?

Hey well here is the funny thing! 
when I made my new year resolution to make more C&S cards it did not include
using pink! Blergh! 

But a wise gal reminded me that "sometimes you have to push yourself"
and another wise friend told me "deep down inside of you there is a love for pink that will come exploding out of you one day...... and then the rest of us will all shout 'HOORAY'!!!!"

yes you know who you are... and I still can't stand pink! haha!

But I want to keep my resolution so I have had to bite the bullet so to speak so I could play 

to help Inspire me I have chosen to play Case this Sketch challenge too!

I have used Some off cuts, a corner rounder a tiny sentiment stamp and a flat back pearl.
Thanks girls here is my result

Here's a couple of other challenge I am playing along with

The Squirrel & the Fox - Anything Goes 
Card Makin' Mamas - clean and simple
Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge - Punch it - Corner rounder punch

hugs me
