Breast Cancer Card

As I'm sure you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Looking through a few challenge blogs, I found a couple requiring pink, some requiring breast cancer awareness, one requiring swirls and one requiring a ribbon loop. This card just all came together in my mind and it turned out just like I hoped.  But before I get to the card, I would ask that you please remember my friend in prayer.  She just found out she has breast cancer and meets with the surgeon Tuesday, Oct. 4 to find out how extensive it is and what the treatment plan is.  This card is for her.

 The card base is from Hobby Lobby.  I used my Cuttlebug and a Quickutz swirls folder to emboss the front, then chalked it with pink.  The flowers are some I bought from a friend who was selling all of her supplies and all edges are inked with pink.

 
 The tag was cut from Storybook,  the pink layer at 2" and the white at 1 3/4".  The sentiment I created on my computer.
 Inside is the same tag cut at 3 1/2" and 3 1/4". 
I hope you like the card, I'm pretty pleased with it.  I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:
My Sheri Crafts - Think Pink
Link Up For Pink - They actually asked me to link up! :)
CASual Fridays - Ribbon loops
Do You Stack Up - swirls
More Than Favors - Breast Cancer

Thanks for stopping by and again, please remember my friend in your prayers!
