Stamping for Breast Cancer Awareness Month - A Pink T. Rex!

  As many of you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  We will be seeing pink everywhere, from NFL football games, to commercials and even on food packaging all month long.  The stamping community on Splitcoaststampers is joining in on this great cause for the second year in a row.  The "Hope You Can Cling To" Challenge Forum is hosting a challenge everyday for stampers to create a card to send to the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas to be used for their patients and patients families. 

  The very first challenge was to create a card with a pink critter on it.  So the following card is what I came up with.  Go to Splitcoaststampers to check out the challenge links and play along.  Let's shower those at MD Anderson Cancer Center with as many cards as we can...a handmade card is a hug with a fold in the middle!  Cheesy but good do you feel when you get a handmade card in the mail?  Exactly!  Get stamping!

  I started this card out with the pink T. Rex of course which I stamped with black Stazon and then colored with a blender pen.  Her belly is Pink Pirouette and the rest of her is Regal Rose.  I added some of the flower punches from the Triple Layer Bouquet Blossom punch just along the edge of the dinosaur panel.  The sentiment was punched with the word window punch and adhered to the edge of the circle.

  Behind the image panel is a strip of Pretty in Pink DSP with some Whisper White satin ribbon wrapped around it.  I added some bling with a strip of adhesive rhinestones along the ribbon.  Behind this panel is a piece of Whisper White that was embossed with the Stripes embossing folder.  This piece was adhered to a piece of Regal Rose and black brads highlight the corners.  All of this pink goodness is mounted on a Pink Pirouette base.

  I hope you will all head over and check out these challenges and offer your support!  For my local stamping ladies, if you would like to participate I would be glad to mail any cards you would like to donate along with mine when I send them to the MD Anderson Cancer Center.  Just shoot me an e-mail and let me know!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp for a good cause today?
