Think Pink

This month, October, is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I consider myself very fortunate that no-one I know has been affected by this devasting illness. None the less, it is something that us women should be aware of and check for on a regular basis.

This is a card that I have made for two challenges this week.

  • the Hand Stamped Sentiments Think Pink Challenge, see the following link  HSSTP Challenge 88
  • and the Simply Stampin' Challenge, which is a sketch challenge, see the following link Challenge #28 Sketch

As you can see, it is very pink and I love it. 

I used Melon Mambo to stamp the images. The Whisper White base card was stamped using one of the smaller stamps from the Delicate Doilies set. The large central stamp is also from the Delicate Doilies set and it was stamped onto Whisper White and then matted onto a piece of Pink Pirouette. I used the Scallop Border Punch to punch out a piece of Pink Piroutte and this was attached to a piece of the Melon Mango spotted paper from the Patterns Designers Series Paper Stack. I also punched out a Scalloped Circle from the designer paper too.  The sentiment is from the Posy Punch stamp set which is one of the New Hostess sets in the 2011-2012 Catalogue.  The whole card was finished off with a piece of Whisper White 5/8" Satin Ribbon

I decided to turn the challenge sketch layout on its side when I was putting all the elements together.  But the original sketch is below.

I probably spent far too long putting this card together but I really like the result and will use this layout again.
