Pink inspiration

I went over to Order of the opus gluei a while ago to see what the challenge is for the next fortnight and found that it's a pink colour challenge. So this is for Order of the opus gluei 148.

I love tinkering around on the computer with pictures, so, when I saw what Gini had to say and saw her pink example, I was inspired to go back to a favourite My Craft Studio CD 'Tinkering with steampunk' to create something pink. Thank you, Gini, for the inspiration that nudged me to get on with something I love doing, but often forget about.

The project was also inspired by the photo given  for Digitally sweet 18:

Having added items and playing around with various elements, colours, fades, etc I came up with this picture which I can then use on a card:

This is also for:
