Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 
It's October and that means Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I made this card with this in mind. I don't have a pink ribbon image so I just used the saying, "You Make My Life a Beautiful Thing." I thought is was close and appropriate.
 

 
A close up of my paper flowers.

 
I'm just loving these black background cards. The colors just "pop" when on black.
The other colors I used here are Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, and Basic Grey.
 

 
I made this card for several challenges listed here:
Challenges 4 Everybody #4-Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time #133 -Butterflies or Buttons
Love to Create #35-Thinking of You
Craft Your Passion #130- Save the Hooters
Color Q #157- color theme (below)
Inspire Me Fridays #79-Anything Goes
Make It Mondays #109-Anything Goes
Lady Anne's Challenges-Anything Goes
 
 
 
Thanks for visiting my blog and I appreciate any comments!
