THINK PINK



Good afternoon everyone...hope you are having a wonderful weekend. We are looking at four days of rain...great to stay inside and craft!
I made this card for two challenges....Friday Sketchers #125 following a fabulous sketch by the ueber-talented Jacque and Just Magnolia Week 78 "Think Pink".
I made this card with my dear friend Jacque in mind and my wonderful, brave niece Elona. My niece (a high school science teacher) is a young lady with three beautiful children, one of whom is a special child with autism. Let me tell you, they both faced this enemy with such class, dignity and unbelievable courage and in Jacque's case, with endless humor. You gals are the BEST!!!!!! My niece underwent a double mastectomy and is on the road to recovery.
I also want to take this opportunity to wish ELISE, who was recently diagnosed, the very best. We are all with you and will celebrate your recovery.
Now on to my card! I really went out on a limb with the dp....not sure it all fits!!
LOL...I used papers from Crafty Secrets, Best Creations and Dove. Lace is from my stash and the ribbon is from Raspberry Ribbons. The lovely corners are from Kort&Godt. I love this image, but was reluctant to use her because coloring this cutie was a bit of a challenge.
Thank you so very much for visiting and leaving a comment. I appreciate you all so much! Hugs, Christina
