'Pink' for Breast Cancer

We are all aware of I'm sure of how many of our dear friends or family have been affected by Cancer. With this in mind Hilde challenged us to make a Pink card for Breast Cancer. Our sponsor is the lovely and generous Sammi Stamps.

 The team were given some lovely images to play with. I chose a flower with the ribbon of Hope tied around it.

The main A5 card was used from cerise pink card stock.....may have been a Lidls pack. The background paper was a pack I bought when our last craft shop was closing it's doors to papercrafters :( 
 The top half is in a paler pink with a darker pink border.
I paper pieced the flower head in the same two papers as the background. Then added perfect pearls in gold to the centre for stamens. 
I hung some green ribbon loosely for the stalk. I did originally paper piece it too but it looked too heavy so I went with narrow ribbon instead. I added the pink bow in ribbon too. Again I did try paper piecing it but it just looked wrong.
I finished off with the sentiment 'HOPE' , in pink, created in 'Word'.
I hope my creation inspires you and you will pop over to Crafting with Dragonflies to see what the rest of the DT girls have created. Don't forget to visit our generous sponsors. And last but not least......Have Fun!!!
