Think PINK

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so I was more than happy to use 'Hope', an image given to me by Tickled Pink Stamps, who are this weeks sponsor for Sketch Saturday, where it is Paula who hosts the challenge and provides us with the sketch, giving me a week off and the chance to play with a sketch other than my own :)

here's my card...

I coloured Hope with my promarkers then VERY carefully cut her out before layering. I wrote 'think PINK' onto the notice she is holding.
The ribbon image was already on the notice, so I decided to use this ribbon to make a matching background paper especially for this card to compliment the image.
The pink, distressed paper is by Fancy Pants 'wishful thinking' I didn't want a paper that was too fussy or would clash with the ribbon paper, but I didn't want the paper to be completely plain either. So this one suited perfectly.
The pretty scalloped edge was made using a xcut border punch, and the sentiment is from SU's 'best yet' stamp set.

Hope will be available to buy from 4th October for a limited time for just $1AU (throughout october )

Please stop by SS to see the beautiful cards made by The Saturdays, and our talented GD for October Donna Mosley.
You'll also find this weeks sketch so that you can join in too :)
Our winner this week will receive either 1 rubber stamp, or 2 digi stamps from the Tickled Pink store :)

Have a wonderful, sunny, weekend! xx
