Think Pink Challenge

Happy Friday! As you know, October is a month where moms, sisters, friends, aunts and daughters unite to tell our "sisters" to remember to raise breast cancer awareness and take care of their personal health. Well, it's also a time when you can send a card to someone affected by breast cancer. It's a time when your creations can actually help save lives! Today, we're unveiling a handful of challenges you can take part in to help others THINK PINK! And, that's why we've decided to make this challenge the focus of our Release Week Challenge! Simply play along in the... HOW TO PLAY: Make a card with a pink flair and you'll be in the running. After you make your creation, simply link it up on this post using our Inlinkz widget. Play as many times as you like. Use Flourishes stamps if you have them but if you don't, play along anyway -- you could win some (five sets to be exact!). You have until October 12th at 5PM EST to enter! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCOCT12. JOIN COPIC OZ! If you make a pink creation and use Copic Markers, you can also join the gals over on the Copic Oz blog as they raise funds for the McGrath Foundation to support those affected by Breast Cancer. For EVERY card entered, $5 will be given to the McGrath Foundation thanks to X-Press Graph-X, our Australian distributor for Flourishes. You have until Monday October 29th (AU EST). And, the winner will be announced on Tuesday October 30th! The winner will receive Flourishes' Think Pink stamp set along with some other goodies! Click HERE to learn more! JOIN SCS! This month, Flourishes is joining dozens of stamp manufacturers and card making retailers along with Splitcoaststampers for the Hope You Can Cling to month for breast cancer awareness. Each day this month, there are challenges with some fabulous prizes on the line -- including a $100 gift certificate courtesy of Flourishes! But, the most important piece of this month is the donation of cards to the MD Anderson Cancer Center. These cards can be sent with encouraging words or can be sent blank, so that families have a way to write notes to their loved ones in care. Instructions on how to send cards are a part of each of the challenges! You can click HERE to learn more about the Hope You Can Cling to campaign! So you see, there are many ways to touch lives this month and you can enter all of them by just making a card or two! So, get those fingers inky and pink! And, when you're done, link up your creation here. What a way to share your time and talents to impact others!
For my creation today I am using the set called Think Pink, Fight like a girl. I have actually used this set quite a bit lately as I have been working on cards for some girlfriends. I stamped the dress out onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink. Colored using copic collections:

My ribbon is this pretty center band satin ribbon in pink along with some lace trim. Added a few finesse swirl pearls along with the candi in iced. Thanks for looking and hope you get to play along.
