In the pink

I have to admit I don't work much with pink at all so when I first saw the 100% pink challenge at CARDS I was like can I do this but I am always up for a challenge and so decided to play along, it certainly took me out of my comfort zone, but that is what a challenge is all about. I kept this card simple focusing on the message of the card. I punched out the little pink ribbons, added pink self adhesive pearls to the middle of each paper ribbon and adhered them to the cardstock with adhesive dimensional foam. The pink lady image is a free digital image that I found on the internet, I printed the image in four different sizes.

Later on this year I might be helping a friend organize a fundraising  breast cancer ladies luncheon, I think this would be a good design for the invites, what does everyone think ?

Today I went for my first class on how to use copic markers, I have never been good at colouring in so I think it might take me some time to get the hang of it. I don't think I will become a Copic addict but want to learn some basic techniques that I can use on my cards, hope I get there in the end.

The Challenges I have included-
For the girls-Here come the girls
Southern girls challenge-Lets hear it for the girls

Hope everyone is having a good weekend crafting, relaxing and generally having fun.

This card was chosen to be part of the CARDS challenge gallery
