Think Pink for Christmas

 October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and so you will see a lot of blogs focusing on things related to that idea this month.  I found a great color challenge#157 at Colour Q this week to use shades of pink with black, gray, and white, so I used that pallette to create my card.  I found some wonderful paper in my stash from a retired line call Sweet and Sour DSP.  I hung on to this glossy piece for just this kind of special occasion :)  And, at Jingle Belles challenge they asked us to make a PINK CHRISTMAS card, and I could not wait to play along with that challenge.   The Crafty Boots Challenge said to include THREE OF SOMETHING in your card, so I did three ornaments from the Keepsakes Ornaments stamp set. 
I have really been having some fun making 3D ornaments out of this stamp set, but today I decided that it was time to just set it to paper, and do something flat, but fabulous.  I blinged them up a little bit with lots of pearls for the girls.  So, think pink, and remember to give yourself a little squeeze, and tell a friend to do it, too. 
Have a great week.  Come back again soon.
