Tilda in Pink

I made this card to join in with the Just Magnolia and Totally Tilda Challenges Both wanted pink and the Totally Tilda wanted us to use pearls too ,,, tick :-)

Before moving on to my card ,, lets just really stop and think about what all these challenges are doing ,,, raising awareness for a terrible disease called breast cancer ,, it is curable, but we need to catch it early ,,,, so if you haven't had a good old feel of your puppies ,, go and DO IT NOW !! While we are on the subject of female health ,, when was the last time you had a cervical smear ??? Look after yourselves girls,, and look after your friends too,, I get my girlfriends together and we all go and get checked together ,,, then go for a nice lunch/dinner afterwards ,, make it into a party !!,,, any excuse eh !! :-)

For my card I used this lovely Wish Granted Tilda i coloured her with copics and added Star Dust stickls and Diamond Dust for sparkle. I used cream coloured SU card which I sprayed with gold glimmer mist and used this for matting. the papers are Magnolia Fairytale ones, I inked all the edges with Vintage Photo and then distressed them all with a Tim Holtz Paper Distresser . I used a Martha Stewart border punch , some Kaiser pearls , a little cream organza ribbon and a few roses from Wild Orchid Crafts ,, I also used a Martha Stewart leaf punch ,,, think thats all :-)

thanks for looking ,,, and please go and check yourself ,, right now !! :-) Lets hope that all the challenges highlighting our awareness really does make a difference and keeps the ladies of blogland safe ,,, and you guy's too ,, you are not immune ,, get the men in your lives to check their breasts and appendages too :-)
