Magical Monday - Pretty In Pink

This week over at the Paper Cupcake's Challenge Blog; There's Magic In The Air; which you can find HERE.   Shirley Quarry brings us our challenge this week. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month and the color for that is Pink; Shirley would like to see us make a card or project that supports that by using the color pink as our main color (75% of your card/project should be Pink). If your card/project reflects cancer awareness by a cancer ribbon of some kind or you can look at the card/project and you can tell this is going to be sent to someone battling breast cancer by the sentiment or image, Paper Cupcakes will place your name in the drawing twice for a chance to win this week.

I used the image "Breast Cancer Cupcake" by Paper Cupcakes. It is on sale for the next 48 hours. I colored my image with colored pencils and added some stickles to the icing. I wanted the image to be the focus so I kept this clean and simple.   The flower on this cupcake is an apple blossom.  It stands for hope and good things to come.

I always think my cards look so much better in real life.  The stickles is always so much prettier, as well as the rhinestones.  I am also going to add this to one of the breast cancer challenges over at SCS. 

It's turned cold here this week after having some 70 degree days last week.  No wonder everyone is walking around with colds and the yucks.  I hope everyone along the East Coast stays safe from the storms and are wise and stay away from the incoming waters.  So, thanks for stopping by this week and I hope you will join in the challenge over at There's Magic In The Air with Paper Cupcakes!
