Challenge Creation and Blog Candy Reminder

Hello, and welcome!

Before we get to today's business, here's a little reminder about my 

Breast Cancer Awareness

You can find all the details 
but please make sure you read to the end of the post to get the full information.

Card Crafter's Circle has another challenge for you and this week the theme is 


As always, we have a very generous sponsor .......

Our randomly chosen winner will get their choice 6 cute images to keep for ever and ever.......happy ending, or what!?

My card uses the sweet little Kirby's Rose and I wanted to be in keeping with 
Breast Cancer Awareness 
so I chose PINK to go with the Black and White theme

I started with a white card blank and added some black and white paper that has been in my stash for the longest time....I have no idea where it came from.....must have been one of those packs that have bits that you don't particularly like..hahaaa!
The centre is layered with a strip of pink and white paper, backed with white cardstock............

I used Promarkers to colour up this little cutie, and added some white dots to her shoes and some glitter to her headband.........and I really need to sort out my photography!!.....sorry.........

You might just be able to see that I used a die cut embossed frame (Craftwork Cards) and rubbed a little pink chalk on the raised areas.  I layered three flowers (stash) and added a black button........

I forgot to take a close-up of the pretty butterfly.......oops.......but it has three teeny black pearls in the centre......I wonder how butterflies manage to flit about with all those embellies on 'em?

Hope you are going to give this challenge a go, and if you need a bit of inspiration, pop over to the challenge blog  and take a dekko at what the rest of the Design Team have been up will not be disappointed!

Don't forget to get your comment in for a chance to be stuffin' all your stash into that fabulous bag!
