The summer of color challenge this week is PINK... what does pink mean to you ? to me I'm in back to the 80s when the movie Pretty in pink came out.... and still to this day when that movie comes on I watch... knowing every line, every look as Duckie, Andy and Blaine play out this love story... it also helps that the movie had great music.....  the title song sung by The Psychedelic Furs.... 

Duckie was the friend you wished you had..Andy had such cool style and Blaine was the nice guy you hoped Andy would end up with ....

So here is my Pretty in pink ATC... I had fun playing with the wax as part of the challenge. I ended up melting some pink crayola crayon on her wings... it made them curl and added a pink tinted texture.

Caroline laughs and
It's raining all day
She loves to be one of the girls
She lives in the place
In the side of our lives
Where nothing is
Ever put straight
She turns herself round
And she smiles and she says
'This is it'

'That's the end of the joke'
And loses herself
In her dreaming and sleep
And her lovers walk
Through in their coats

Pretty in pink
Isn't she?
Pretty in pink
Isn't she?

All of her lovers
All talk of her notes
And the flowers
That they never sent
And wasn't she easy
And isn't she
Pretty in pink
The one who insists
He was first in the line
Is the last to
Remember her name
He's walking around
In this dress
That she wore
She is gone
But the joke's the same

Pretty in pink
Isn't she?
Pretty in pink
Isn't she?

Caroline talks to you
Softly sometimes
She says
'I love you' and
'Too much'
She doesn't have anything
You want to steal
Nothing you can touch
She waves
She buttons your shirt
The traffic
Is waiting outside
She hands you this coat
She gives you her clothes
These cars collide

Pretty in pink
Isn't she?
Pretty in pink
Isn't she?
