In the Pink – PPA14 pink challenge

The talented divas at Pals Paper Arts came up with a pink challenge for October, breast cancer awareness month.  I’m not a pink person but earlier in the month I saw a photo in a fashion magazine and the fabric was interesting and it was pink.  When I received the challenge I thought it would be perfect.  I replicated the fabric for my card using the faux suede paper technique from Splitcoast Stampers.  The card turned out to be quite different from my usual style but I like it.  I had a dear high school friend pass away from this disease when she was only 33 leaving behind a husband and three small children.   This card is meant to be given to all the women fighting cancer and to know they are being included in our prayers and well wishes for recovery.
