In the Pink Again

    Another Pink card for October's Breast Cancer Awareness, this time using a delightful image from The East Wind.  This was a newsletter freebie and works so perfectly for Breast Cancer Awareness cards.  Mine is focused on those of us who have survived and on celebrating that marvelous fact.  :-D

I chose to work with the sketch from Mojo Monday
but deviated from it a bit because I simply loved 
all the polka dots and didn't want to cover them up on the
lower portion of the card.  :-D

     I used my ProMarkers to color it, then cut it with a Stitched Scalloped Circle die from Memory Box.  I die cut another plain Stitched Circle (Die-namics) as a frame and then layered that onto another, larger Stitched Scalloped Circle for an additional frame.

     I used very wide, sheer, pink ribbon and added a polka dot ribbon on top of that.  Both of those are scraps left from another project which you'll be seeing in a couple of days.  I die cut the sentiment tag and finally, made one of my 'bowtie' bows, using yet another polka dot ribbon from my scrap stash bin.
