In the pink

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and in it's honour all colour challenges on SCS will include pink! I teamed this challenge this Taylor Van Bruggen's sketch challenge from last Friday and this is what I came up with. Here's Taylor's sketch that I took inspiration from:

The colour challenge was to use Pink Pirouette or Pretty in Pink, Basic Black and Whisper White. It's always fun working with circles - these were all cut withe nesties. The pink circles were also embossed with the Swiss Dots e/f.

The butterfly is from Garden Whimsy set - I stamped her (because it's pink!) once then again on a separate piece of cardstock. The second one was cut out and adhered with glue dots to make these pretty wings. Miniature pearls and a hat pink finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by - going to create something pink this weekend?!

Stamps - Garden Whimsy (SU!)

Cardstock/Paper - Pretty in Pink/Basic Black/Whisper White (all SU!)
Other - Pretty in Pink Taffeta ribbon (SU!)/gingham ribbon, cuttlebug, nestabilities, swiss dot embossing folder, pearls, hatpin, black brads, corner rounder

Hi Kate

Love the card, mounting a butterfly in that way is one of my favourites! Great cause I think you'll find more pink on my cards this month too!

Hi Kate

I love this card - both the colours and the sketch :-) What a good idea to combine the card with reminding us its Brest Cancer Awareness Month

Thank you for the lovely comments on my blog. I look forward to seeing more of your creations here and on ILWS

That's sooo pretty Kate! Such a sweet colour combo too.

I've not got the garden whimsy set yet but I'm going to have to have it, it's adorable.

Oh dear my Christmas list is getting very looong with all the lovely things in the new catty - Yikes!
