CC136: Think Pink!

For the color challenge today, I went with something I am making an annual event – in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month it is a PINK challenge. So the idea is to use anything and everything pink…..and try to have fun with it – not just a card! You can view the challenge <here>.

Also, I’d like to share something cool that Jen sent me. The My Favorite Things Design Team is having an auction on Ebay. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Susan G Komen for the Cure Foundation. They each designed a card using the MFT set Think Pink and the auction is for all 18 of those cards! These are some amazing cards AND it supports charity! You can find the auction <here>. I am not affiliated with MFT, I just hold this cause close to my heart. My Aunt and Grandmother are Breast Cancer survivors and my husband lost his mother to Breast Cancer when he was only 12. So please check out that auction and get your pink!

Here is what I made for this challenge – these are both for someone else who has battled breast cancer….


supplies: GinaK Designs flower trio image; A Muse sentiment; black and white stazon; purely pomegranate, pretty in pink, and white cardstock; purely pomegranate, bashful blue, mellow moss and pretty in pink inks; dimensionals; May Arts polka dot organdy; white gel pen; paper piercer; cuttlebug and niji waterbrush.

And then a little something to go along with it and the whole theme….


supplies: basicgrey phoebe papers, hobby lobby blocks, mod podge, plaid acrylic sealant matte, making memories rub ons, sanding blocks, and white acrylic paint.

Ok, that’s all for now!

  • I love these blocks that you are making!! We can’t buy them here but I think I could find some old ones somewhere and just paint over them! These would be such great gifts and decorations for our Women’s Christmas Tea!! Love all you ideas!!!!

    Oh, Emily…this brings tears to my eyes. Breast cancer awareness is close to my heart too. I sent my Katie a totally pink card using MFT’s lady in the bathtub set. I also sent her a very nice zippered sweatshirt that has Texas embellishments on it to help keep her warm this winter. Your card is gorgeous, your blocks are inspiring….you are awesome!!

  • Love your card, that is such a great color combo and the block are fantastic.

    Having a stamping/crafting event dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness would be so fantastic and just what I am going to encourage my SU demonstrator to look to next year since time is so short this year! I love the blocks and am definitely going to make some just as soon as I can drive the 50 miles to the nearest Hobby Lobby!
