I feel like over the last 2 weeks my main focus for cards has been pink/breast cancer awareness...but each card I make turns out nothing like I want and I end up scrapping or shelving it...

I tried again today.  I'm happier with this card.  But it still isn't what I was hoping for, not that I really know what that is... :)  But I feel this one is closer..
I really love brown and pink together, doesn't matter the shades.  The dark brown framing on this card really pops with the light pinks and I love that!  And of course, I love leopard print and since I had some of that paper, I used it...(though thinking about it now...I never make cards with leopard print...hmmm...)

Nothing too fancy with this card...again...I cut the frame from a cut file with my cricut.  The image and sentiment are from the Ooh La La set from Paper Makeup, colored in with my colored pencils.
I layered up some white and pink ribbon and tied a bow with them, gluing a large pearl in the middle.
Around the edge I added little white paint dots that I covered with pink glitter so it was all nice and sparkly :)

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
    The Crafty Pad-Breast Cancer Awareness/Think Pink
    Dawn's Crafting-Breast Cancer Awareness/Think Pink
    Forever Friends #45-Color Challenge
    Mojo Monday Sketch #260
    One Stitch at a Time #132-Bingo (Ribbon, Digi, Die Cut)
    Pattie's Creations #53-Anything Goes
    Stamptacular Sunday #182-Bling it On
    That Craft Place-Bling it On

I also wanted to share with you another opportunity to give to a heartbreaking cause.  Krista Smith at Saturated Canary has shared information in her Butterflies post about a disease called Epidermolysis Bullosa.  Such a horrible disease...breaks my heart reading parents stories of their little ones suffering from this.
To help raise a little money for this cause, Krista has drawn up an adorable little Butterfly Baby and for the next week, all proceeds from this digi will go to the Butterfly Fund Charity.
Please visit her blog and check out her shop, and maybe spend $4 on this cute digi to offer a little help :)
Thanks for stopping by!
