Pink for CASual Fridays

I haven't been at my craft desk in a while - I had SOOOOO much marking to do, and then my craft room reverted to a bedroom for a few days (for nieces and nephew to stay over), which required the removal of a HEAP of my crafty stuff and the folding up of my desk, and then this week I've had 3 days off work (yay!), but have had a headache since Monday. Ugh.  Haven't been able to get up the energy to do pretty much anything. 
However, I was really missing participating in some challenges, so I've made a couple of cards tonight for submission in a few of this week's challenges out there in blogland.
I made this card with CASual Fridays' Pretty in Pink challenge in mind.  I'll also be submitting it for this week's "Less is More" challenge - Something Shiny.  The papers I used are all from Basic Grey, and the zigzag stitch is from a Hero Arts set.  I used Distress stickles in the centre of the flower, and coloured the SU brad with a pink Copic marker. 
 The flower was made using a technique I learned from Sue Madex - you can visit her blog here.
