Bright pink for Easter

I had an appointment for a dental check-up this morning (all was fine, thankfully) and on the way back home I needed to get some cheap envies from Poundland for everyday use (bills and things - not worth using the good stuff for those - lol). Anyway, I happened to have a quick browse in Poundland and came across a pack of 30 doileys - 10 large blue ones (don't think they'll ever get used), 10 white and floral about 7" across (might be useful one day) and 10 bright pink ones about 5.5" across. I decided to use some of these straight away, so here is my first card with the doiley mounted on to a pink and white striped card. This was actually half of a card blank that was the same back and front, so I cut it to be able to make two cards by mounting on a white blank.The other bits and pieces were all bought on a previous visit to Poundland.
