Why do the colors on the card come out Black/Pink?

Right click on your printer and choose Printing Preferences

Choose the ribbon you have installed in the printer from the drop down box.

Click OK.

If that does not work, verify the ribbon setting manually by again opening Printing Preferences, then clicking on the Tools tab.
