In honour of breast cancer awareness.....

This week for the ColourQ challenge we are honouring Breast Cancer Awareness month by using a pink colour scheme. This does hit close to home as I know a few women who have been diagnosed and won their battle with it, unfortunately I'm sure we all do. Hopefully more and more battles can continue to be won.

I made this card for one of those fabulous ladies, one of my mom's best friends.

The patterned paper was made using a couple of flowers from Papertrey Ink's With Sympathy set. The sentiment is from my all time favourite Hero Arts sentments set, All Occasion Messages.

I also made a card using the other colour combo Arielle put together.

I made it using a technique I saw recently, using your embossing folders for a sort of letterpress technique. I inked up the back plate of my folder, placed my cardstock inside and ran it through. I did this with my argyle folder and red and orange inks. I then punched out the hearts using a Fiskars punch.

So, please play along with our TWO fabulous colour combos over at ColourQ this week. To make it even sweeter, I believe Arielle is offering a special prize to someone this week who creates and posts a card for each colour combo! Wooohooo!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day. :)
