Think Pink!

Hi there!

I am not a pink person in general, but love to play with the colour when doing special projects like this!  As Lisa from Digi Darla said:
These days it is getting harder and harder to find someone who hasn't been touched by cancer.  It is breast cancer awareness month and it is the perfect opportunity to create a card letting someone know we are thinking about them.  The card doesn't specifically have to be for someone dealing with cancer, it could just be for someone that is dealing with some sort of difficulty, or a project that lets someone you care about, know that you are thinking of them.  However, in honour of breast cancer awareness month, we do ask that you include lots of pink on your creation.

This week's challenge is to use as much pink as possible, and I do LOVE a challenge!  So here's my 6x8"card:
I started with Digi Darla's two images, 'Fairy Love' and 'Miracles Are Everywhere'.  I printed 2 3.5x5" of the Fairy and 2x3" of the saying.  Prismacolour pencils were used to colour both images and the hand/heart of the second fairy.  I used Labels 22 to cut out the fairy and then Decorative Labels 22 to cut out the mat out of a scrap of pink card.  A hand cut second mat was done out of a lighter pink card.  I placed this onto an old printed cardstock piece from my stash.  I believe it is from Die Cuts With A View.  I cut apart the greeting then reassembled it overlapping the matted image. 

The card is an 8x12" piece of pink Bazzil cardstock folded in half.  Then placed a 5.5x7.25" piece of Think Pink paper by Me & My Big Ideas.  A strip of SU! Purely Pomegranate satin ribbon was wrapped around the card front, then the layered panel on top of that.  A strip of flower ribbon was placed across the front to add more detail.  As a finishing touch I cut out the heart and hand from the second fairy image and pop-dotted it over the original, then added stickles (Cotton Candy) to her wings and (Magenta) to the flowers in her hair.
Enjoy and challenge yourself to create something pink!  Hugs!
