Think Pink!

This card is for several things: first, it's Breast Cancer Awareness month, so it's a reminder to get your mammograms scheduled. Second, it's for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #42--last minute again. Third, it's for a new challenge blog calls Just Us Girls--or JUGS for short ;-) This is just the second week and the challenge is a technique challenge--to use paper piecing and with the optional challenge of using pink on the card for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

I stamped the main image, from Think Pink (which is apparently sold out at the moment), on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored it with Copic markers and paper pieced the suit and the skirt. The sentiment is from Twisted Too, also apparently out of stock right now.

Don't forget the contest going on at the My Favorite Things' Member Company Forum. You have until midnight tonight to get this week's challenge in. But don't despair if you can't make it--there are five more weeks to win a finalist spot and the next challenge will be posted on Wednesday, October 14.

Thanks for dropping in today!

  1. Hello Barbara, your card is beautiful, I love the colors and the image! happy monday!

  2. Very pretty, that BG paper is perfect with this image and I MUST do that sketch---I keep seeing really nice things made with it!

  3. Barbara, your card is GORGEOUS! I love how you stitched the circle panel, and the paper you used to piece the suit and the skirt! Just stunning! My favorite element on your card is the breast cancer awareness ribbon! That turned out PERFECTLY! I love it!!!

  5. Hey, maybe this week YOU can be The Biggest Boob on the JUGS challenge? LOL CUTE card and theme!

  6. Barbara this is striking and SO eye catching. I love the ribbon in honor of NBCAM and am tickled pink that you took us up on the optional pink part of the challenge. The stitching on the circle is perfect - I'm so jealous - can't even stitch a STRAIGHT line let alone a curve. LOL
