Think Pink

As it is Breast Cancer Awareness month I thought I would make this card. We probably all know somebody who has been affected by cancer in one or another. I made a card similar to this last year for my mum to give to her friend and she loved it and treasured it...I hope you love it too. I used the embossing plate and sizzlit die from the sizzix pink ribbon kit which is perfect for making little fundraising items!! I also wanted the embossed words to be seen rather than having an image cover them up...so I added some pink chalk to enhance the embossing...finished with some ribbon and 3 little gems. I have entered this card in the Stamp & Create Challenge...not sure if I need a stamped image but this one was more about the card than the challenge as I am sending this card to Lacey's friend.
