The Power of Pink

This is the first Wednesday of the month and our challenge over at Dude Time Doodles is usually a sketch challenge - however, due to October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we're doing things a little different.  So "Think Pink" and show us what you got!  You have one week to submit your artwork and who knows - you may be the winner or one of the top three of our challenge.  You're NOT required to use a Bonibleaux image but of course it always makes us smile when you do.


I kept this card SUPER simple because I wanted you to focus on what a cute image this little Breast Cancer Awareness Girl is.  You can find her and more great images in the Dude Time Doodles STORE.  You can also get a whole bunch of sentiments to go with this - like "fight like a girl", "save the hooters", etc.  I did do a little stitching on this but other than that it's just very plain - but hopefully, this image "says it all". 

Breast Cancer has touched so many of our lives in different ways.  Take time this month to "be aware".  Get check-ups and mammograms and if you know someone that hasn't done this in a while, encourage them to do so.

Thanks for stopping by.......and be sure and check out the challenge at Dude Time Doodles!

Great pink card! Great job mixing those pinks too, I have a hard time mixing different shards of the same color.

A super image for this month Lynn. Is that stitching around the card? Wow, I still need to try that too... such a schlep to get the sewing machine out though. Take care, Sharon
