Pinkalicious!

I have had a few ideas rattling around in my head for the JustRite Challenge #103  Things with Wings. Late last night I finally had some time to try and put one of the ideas into paper! This particular challenge also partners with Spellbinder Dies so I used a multitude of Spellbinder dies on this card!  I like Spellbinders because I am able to really mix and match shapes.  And if I cut a die shape out and it doesn't work with the card I am making I just put it into a basket with other cut die shapes to use on another card down the road.  This way I have a ready and varied stash of cuts in regards to shapes and colors.

 I decided to go with a "Breast Cancer" themed card as unfortunately, there are always so many people that I can send this card to. I have a sweet little set from JustRite that is all breast cancer themed....and I have used and used  and used this set.  I only ended up using the sentiment from the Be Strong set this time. I decided to enter this card into Our Creative Corner's Challenge Words, Words, Words as I think that this sentiment says it all!  Together we CAN find a cure. The little white embossed doily is from a JustRite set called Graceful Monogram and the white embossed pink background is a large background stamp called Sweet Lace.  When I started this card some of the inking and papers were in a second color of pink...ultimately I decided that was too much going on and so since I didn't want to sacrifice layers I decided to sacrifice color!  But all in all I like this card.  I am loving that background stamp.  This is the first time that I have inked it up and I can say it inked up beautifully and evenly the first time out! And, think about stopping over to the JustRite site.....there is a new challenge every Friday.  Also, there is still time to enter JustRite Challenge #103 Things with Wings.  So here is my card....Pink Rules!


And here is the inside.  I see know there is a bit of a smudge....so I will have to have a do over before I send this on. It's amazing what I see thru the camera that I don't always catch in RL!


Thank you so much for stopping by and all your kind comments lately.  I appreciate each and every one of them.

Be Well,
Sheila
