Think Pink!

In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought it would be fun to create a pink, girly kind of card that would be great for sharing with a friend.
I tried to pull out all of the "girly" kinds of embellishments I could think of to make this a joy to give and to receive.
This wonderful phrase is a rub-on by My Mind's eye. I cut the paper that holds it with a circle shape so I could add this to the front of my card. The scallop border is a Martha Stewart border punch and I added a line of machine sewing and some tiny rhinestones.
The bird on the branch is also a rub-on. I rubbed it onto white cardstock so that I could then cut that shape out to use as an accent. The swirls are accented with glitter. I used Glitter Fabric Dimensional paint from Tulip. I like this glitter because it gives a subtle amount of bling while still letting you see what is underneath. A big bow was added to the card with a brad and the bird accent was glued over that.
Thanks for visiting the Pursuit of CraftYness blog today, Linda (lbpost)
