Pink October

By now everyone knows that October is know as Breast Cancer Awareness Month or Pink Ribbon Month. Personally, as a family, we have not been touched by this cancer but I do know how it has affected others around me.
I do believe that because of the high media coverage, that breast cancer has gotten during October and because of all the monies raised from selling Pink Ribbons and merchandising the brand, the number of people, female AND male surviving this cancer has risen enormously.
This is good.

I  have a friend who has been just given the all clear from this awful disease. It was such a relief to hear and in part of celebration I sent her this card.

The backing papers were freebies that I got from a magazine a short time ago. I also used another card from this magazine as inspiration for the layout.
The image, is also a freebie that I have for ages it came in a pack of "Lili of the Valley" ready stamped images all I had to do was to colour it it.

I used pencils to colour the image, I blended the colours with some baby oil to soften the strokes. I used sukara pens to add sparkle to her dress and pearls.

Backing papers: Freebies from Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazines.
Image: Freebie - "Lili of the Valley" pack.
Colour medium: Pencils and Sukara pen.
Ribbons: Papermania capsule collection.

Hope you like,

Love your colouring Vicky. Yes, Breast cancer and cancer in general is an awful disease and it would be wonderful if there were a cure. Glad to hear your friend got the all clear :)

Vicky, you know how much I ADORE this beautiful card! When you first sent it to me, I put it on my mantel-piece, then it came into my bedroom, but now it lives in a little folder and comes everywhere with me, tucked into my's my talisman! It's the only card that was made for me, and I show it to everybody....I will never forget your kindness, my friend. x

Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
