Think Pink

Good Morning lovelies!
I was very luck to be invited to Guest Design this month at

The Sisterhood Of Crafters

The theme for the first challenge is "Think PINK"
(In honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month)

As some of you will know, this is a cause very dear to my heart as
my mum had breast cancer a couple of years ago! Happily, she is a survivor and
we are greatful to the medical teams & support staff who looked after her so very well!
So, on to my card!

I coloured up the image with my Promarkers.
She's a freebie image I got a little while ago via the Saturated Canary
Facebook Group! Isn't she a stunner!

Here's a closer look at her!
I cut out the image with a Spellbinders die & inked with
 a little Worn Lipstick distress ink,

The papers I've used are from First Edition, Bird Cage Stack
The plain paper is by American Crafts.
The border was created using a Martha Stewart Doily Punch.
The gorgeous Faux Silk ribbon is from my stash.
As you can see the inside of the card is decorated too!

I hope you can play along in the Think PINK Challenge.
