:: It's All Pink, Green & White for Birthday Sundaes Challenge #23! ::

Photo Credit:  My hubs!!!
I have been out of town the last few days but my trip has been extended 
for a few more days which means this post is being typed while I'm away! 
To my horror, I realized I had not taken a picture of this week's challenge card to post...
Luckily for me, my husband who is at home (with my card) offered to photograph it for me.  Kudos AT! S:o)
I've been a little quiet this week as some of you might have noticed!
I've been away spending some time way/relaxing before I head back to work the week after next. 
It's scary to think September is just around the corner which means it's back to school for kids in Ontario!  Summer 2011 has zipped me by!

However, on to more important things... who loves a colour challenge?!
This week's challenge at Birthday Sundaes is to create a card with PINKGREEN and WHITE!  Our guest designer this week is Rachelle!  After you go to see her creation on the BSC blog, check out more of her adorable creations at I'm Black Martha.  She is such a talented lady! 

Don't forget to check out the rest of the Design Team cards as well!  
These ladies know how to rock a challenge!

For my creation this week, I used some elements that were in my stash.
Unfortunately I do not remember some of the products that I've used but here we go...

Hero Arts 4x6 'Cupcakes' clear stamp set
Bazzil Basics cardstock (pink)
