I Believe In Pink


Both my mom and grandmother survived breast cancer so Breast Cancer Awareness Month hits pretty close to home for me.  This week CAS-ual Fridays is asking us to celebrate the women in our lives and the colour combo at ColourQ is perfect for the card I imagined.  The stamp is from Unity's October 2011 Kit of the Month - Faith, Hope, Love... Live By It.  The kit is full of inspiring images and sentiments that are perfect for celebrating the fabulous women in our lives.


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Pacon, (Melon Mambo, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (October 2011 KOM - Faith, Hope, Love... Live By It) Unity
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black)  Tsukineko
Punch:  (Corner Rounder) Marvy Uchida
Gems:  (Cupcake assortment) Doodlebug
