Think Pink

Hi guys,  just thought I'd pop by with a Birthday card I made for a friend who loves pink! I saw that Live and Love crafts have a think pink challenge on at the moment for cancer awareness, seeing as that is very close to home (me) I thought I'd join,
I'm clear now and it was caught so very early, I'm really lucky so all I can say girls is get yourself checked if they ask you for a mammogram, as i didn't even know it was there!!!
anyway enough of that as I say, and onto the card!!!
I just had to use the beautiful Maja design papers from Vintage basics collection, so Love Maja Design papers!!! distressed the edges a little and then got to work with a couple of stencils and hand made texture paste,  
The Saturated Canary digi called snail mail is coloured with my distress re-inkers and is layered onto a gorgeous die by Joy crafts 6002/0304,
the flowers I used are from my stash and the seam binding is again from Live and Love crafts, So  love the things Sandy sells, swoon swoon!!!
To finish it off I used some word dies again from my stash,
My friend isn't into over fussy so it's another one which doesn't have much lace, layers and frills, still it keeps it with me then to stroke and look at lol,

Hi Liz,
Good to hear you're clear! My MIL was affected some years ago, so I've experienced it first-hand and that's why I think it's so important to acknowledge breast cancer awareness month. Lovely shabby pink card; she's adorable! Thanks so much for joining LLC this month.
