Challenge #111 - What's NEW??

Hi Lovely Pinkies...

As we're still in the 'new' year.... we decided our challenge this time should be...

WHAT'S NEW?
(in pink of course!)

So we'd like to see what you can come up with using something NEW...  (maybe you've got new stash at Christmas), or it could be that your creation is for a NEW baby..  you can interpret WHAT'S NEW your own way!  We'd like to know your what's NEW about your card though.... we love to be nosey into other people's stash!!  Don't forget our number one rule though, that you need to use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR (with the exception of whites and neutrals of course), otherwise your card may not be considered.

Here's what the lovely Pink Ladies have come up with for your inspiration...

And now the happy news..... we have lovely Stacey Schofield rejoining our team of Pink Ladies and getting out her pink satin jacket again...  Stacey had to step down a while back when she had to give more time to her job... but now, WOO HOO...  she's back!  Her cards are truly stunning - she's a whizz with embellishments...  and we're sure you'll be inspired by her.

Here's her card for this challenge... beautiful or what???!!
