PINK! Strength

Posted by Ruth at 8:34 AM
I have a really hard time working with pink. Those of you who knew me when my first daughter was born know that I really don't like pink. I've grown use to my older daughter wearing and loving pink, I've even made concessions for pink room decorations and toys. But working with pink in a craft is really... really... against the grain for me

But, it's Breast Cancer Awareness month (by the way, you should check out my draw this month, it's in support of BCAM) and so I'm determined to do several projects in pink.
This card uses Close to My Heart's "A Sip" and Stampin' Up's "Favorite Thoughts" and "Pretty Petals". The paper and ink are both Stampin' Up and the sparkles are Close to My Heart.

I adore the sentiment, absolutely adore it. The inside of the card is blank. This can be used as a "we're here to support you, stay strong" card, or simply, "I'm thinking of you as you go through this rough time". I could also be used as a, "thank you for your kind support" card.

Thank you for checking in, I'll see you often this month for more PINK!

Gorgeous card, Ruth! I love the pink and purple combo. Love the quote, the pink ribbon and those tiny bling accents. Very nice! :)

Well, you wouldn't know that you have hard time working with pinks because this card looks great. I think your colouring on the dragons is fantastic too!

Beautiful card! I love the sentiment!! Two of my friends recently finished treatment for breast cancer and I have to say - both of them fought like troopers!

I love the bling on the steam too!!
Great job using the pink - even though you don't like it so much!

Great job, love the pink, (sorry) and the lavender. The sentiment is just perfect. Bling is always welcome!
