The Mirri card as well as the contrast between the whites & pinks made this quite difficult to photograph. I normally use the enhance photo editing function but that turned the pink fluorescent so a couple of the photos are somewhat darker than I would have liked. The only way I could manage to keep the colours reasonably true to life was to not edit the exposure at all.

This week the Penny Black Reader Challenge is to create a card using white space as a primary element whereas the Penny Black Saturday Challenge is PRETTY IN PINK.

Stamp Penny Black 3881H Sparkle.
Inks etc... VersaMark watermark stamp pad with Stampendous White Pearls Embossing Powder, Distress Inks (Spun Sugar & Worn Lipstick) for inking pink cardstock edges.
Colouring Twinkling H2Os.
Cardstock White card blank (Craft UK Ltd), Bits N Pieces A4 Assorted Embossed Card (Snow White Textures), assorted pink including Mirri card from stash.
Punches/Templates  Woodware (circles & scalloped circles), Xcut (corner), WS Designs Star Layering Template.

I think your pictures are just fine...I totally know what you mean-- when the photo editing makes the colors look completely off!...I can clearly see everything you've pointed out:)...I like simple, pretty things, and this card fits the bill!!...Really nice!:):)
