The Meaning of Pink Roses

Pink Roses:

Pink roses are commonly presented as gifts and lovingly grown by gardeners alike. Pink roses can mean quite a variety of things from “thank you for your assistance” to “I’m thinking of you.” Pink roses like yellow are the perfect gift for just about anyone. You can choose darker pink for someone with a wild outgoing personality and pale pink for a gift recipient who is shy or calm and collected. - Charity Armstrong

butterfly and flowers - craft essentials

Edit: As Stacey said (her comment) I usually don't do pink. Pink is not my thing at all, i.e. I'm not familiar with it. But then again... it feels darn good to think "why not" ;)

The challenges this fits are

Do You Stack Up? - Challenge #3 pink
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - anything goes
2 Sisters  - flowers
Pile It On - Anything Goes

  4. The card is lovely! It's so soft and delicate. I'm in my "pink" mode myself this month; last month it was blue. I'm sure whomever you plan to give this to will totally enjoy it. Hugs, dj
