This month Flourishes release week challenge recognizes Breast Cancer Awareness. 
HOW TO PLAY: Make a card with a pink flair and you'll be in the running. After you make your creation, simply link it up on this post using our Inlinkz widget. Play as many times as you like. Use Flourishes stamps if you have them but if you don't, play along anyway -- you could win some (five sets to be exact!). You have until October 12th at 5PM EST to enter! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCOCT12.
JOIN COPIC OZ! If you make a pink creation and use Copic Markers, you can also join the gals over on the Copic Oz blog as they raise funds for the McGrath Foundation to support those affected by Breast Cancer. For EVERY card entered, $5 will be given to the McGrath Foundation thanks to X-Press Graph-X, our Australian distributor for Flourishes. You have until Monday October 29th (AU EST). And, the winner will be announced on Tuesday October 30th! The winner will receive Flourishes' Think Pink stamp set along with some other goodies! Click HERE to learn more!
For my card I chose the set Petals and Peace.  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored it with Copic markers.
I cut out the image using a die from the Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole die set and inked inside the die with Wheat ink from a VersaMagic Dew Drop.  I stamped the image on a piece of vellum and popped it up using dimensional adhesive (can’t you see it?!) Argh.  Anyway, I used Christmas Music stamped on Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock
for the background and added a doily also inked lightly with Wheat.    The finishing touch is a beautiful ruffled ribbon – Flat Edge Pleated Trim in Faded Cherry.
The Copic Collections used here is :
Lenten Rose Collection
