Thinking Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Sassettes want you to show your support by using pink this week.  I used  The Funky Double Birthday Cake stamp.  I chose a pink and brown color palette to symbolize what else but CHOCOLATE.  Who does not like CHOCOLATE!

I colored my image with Copics and took Copper Stickles to add a little sparkle and coordinate with the DP.  My card stock is SU, DP is My Mind's Eye.  I distressed the edges of my papers with Antique Photo Tim Holt inks.  The butterflies are double cuts with SU Beautiful Wings embosslit.  I also used Large Scalloped Cirlces  Spellbinders Nestibility.  The sentiment is from Just Rite.  I finished it off with a big 'ole pink tulle bow.  I do like that sassy slant, very girly girly, don't ya think?

OK, now it's your turn grab your pink goodies and create away.  Enter your card here and you could win a very special Sassy Cheryl gift certificate.  Use a Sassy Cheryl digi and you are automatically entered twice. 

Come on, whatcha' waitin' for?  You only have til 5:00 EST to enter the Pink Challenge.

Other Challenges I would like to enter this card in are:

Dude Time Doodles - Breast Cancer Awareness
Celebrate The Occasion - Think Pink
Touched By A Butterfly - First Annual Link Up For Pink
