Delicious Doodles Challenge - Friday 25 April 2014 - Pink and girly for Breast Cancer Awareness

 It is Friday and therefore time for another challenge over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog.  This week the topic is "pink and girly for Breast Cancer Awareness".
This was certainly a challenge for me.  When I was growing up everything I had was pink or red but over the last 15-20 years I haven't like pink or red any more - strange eh?  I will sometimes use red in crafting but I don't use pink much.

For my card I have used the gorgeous Delicious Doodles image called "Valentina".  I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Aged Mahogany distress ink.

The backing papers are from my beloved Tim Holtz paper pad my son got me for Christmas some years ago.  I spent a long time not being able to use them as they are so nice but now I have the problem there aren't many left!!  On one of the backing papers and the doily I have stamped with the Visible Image stamp called "Grunge Flourish" with a Versamark ink pad and then heat embossed with a pink embossing powder.  I normally use a silver, gold or white embossing powder but love the effect of the pink.  

I have finished the card off with some raffia ribbon, wooden heart embellishment coloured with a Papermania pink pearlescent pen, pink flowers with some Stickles added to them, pearls, gems and a die-cut sentiment.

One VERY pink creation!!!
