Y = You Choose

Hello again, for the next two weeks at Alphabet Challenges
we have reached the letter Y - so we would like 
You to Choose.
Please check out the amazing inspiration from the DT.
For my card, I have been working with a wonderful
bargain I purchased at a recent craft show,
Papermaina Die Cut and Paper Pack - Bellisiama.
The gorgeous soft pink and green has made a very pretty
girly card. I added pink pearls.
I'm so looking forward to playing with the pack, 
to make lots more cards. 
What I wonder are YOU going to choose for the challenge?
