What an Inspiration!

Good Morning all!
It's the 3rd Wednesday of the month & that means,
it's time for an Inspirational Challenge at
Here is your Inspiration!

Fantastic eh!
I know for sure the Dudettes & our GDT Dude Kevin loved this one!
I'm sure we are all aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
For that reason, the Dudettes (& our Dude's) cards have all had 
a touch or more of pink this month!
So continuing in that vein, we'd like you to create something for a Dude 
using the photo above for your inspiration!
Here's my card!

If you haven't met her before, let me introduce you to
(Available from Dude Time Doodles & on special offer too!)
She's a real stunner of a Super Hero & is out there promoting
 Breast cancer Awareness to all!
Her message is one of encouragement to all out there who are fighting this terrible disease!
Some of you may still not be aware that men can get Breast Cancer too!
Well her message to those Dudes is clear!
"Fight Like A Girl!"
I know a quite a few Super Hero's who have fought the fight & are here to tell the tale!
I also know a few who are travelling the Pink Road as we speak!
They are all Fighting Like Girls!!!
So, on to my card!
The base is a little pre printed, pre scored card blank which, 
I wasn't sure I'd ever use but I think it's just perfect for this card!
The zebra print papers are from the Trendy Girl set at Scrapbooking Mad.
I matted the papers & image on to plain black craft paper
The layout was my own.

Here's Breast cancer Awareness Girl a bit closer!
I coloured her up with Promarkers & added a few accents with 
a white gel pen & a Sakura Clear star pen.
Just look at those peepers!

The flowers were punched & then embossed to add a bit of dimension.
I mounted them on foam pads to make them pop!
I added a different sized black gem to each!
The little flourishes are die cut using a Marianne Creatable Die.

The sentiment comes as part of the set! 
There are several to choose from but I thought this one was ideal for this card!
Let's hope you can find the time to enter the challenge
It would be awesome to have you there!
As ever, I'd like to enter my card in a few challenges
