Think Pink in October

October is breast cancer awareness month. So I figured it was the perfect time to ink up Causeabella. I love this stamp, she can be used for just about any cause by changing the color of the ribbon. She is just so much fun to color, too.

I used two different challenges for this card. The first one was Mercy's Tuesday sketch challenge (MTSC43). Once again, she had another amazing sketch to use! I also just found the JUGS blog. That stands for Just Us Girls. Their challenge this week was to paper piece (JUGS2). I love paper piecing, so I pieced this Bella's dress. They also asked us to use pink this week. I love all these challenge blogs, they really give me great inspiration.

Off to a doctor's appointment this morning. Hopefully things will look good. Only eleven days to go. I probably should be freaking out a bit, but I'm not yet. Thanks for stopping by today!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Causeabella and sentiment by Stamping Bella
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Pink Passion
Paper: PTI ssw, Pink Passion, patterned paper from Creating Keepsakes
Embellishments: nesties, copics, spica pens, dimensionals, SU oval punches, Dots and Dashes ribbon, PTI button, embroidery floss, rhinestone

Kathy this is fabulous. I think the Bellas are perfect for paper piecing and you are SO right about CauseABella and her ribbon. I'm tickled pink that you used a lot of pink on your card. Thank you SO MUCH for playing along with Just Us Girls this week. I hope you really had fun and will come back again!
