Going Pink for cancer awareness

Hello Wednesday! Yep it means another challenge over at the creative cottage challenge blog today and it's my choice this wk! I have chosen the nice and easy theme of Pink for cancer awareness as this sunday I am running the race for life in Chester. I am fortunate enough to know family and friends who have been survivors of cancer and choose to run both for them and for those who have been lost. If anyone feels generous enough to sponsor me, even just 50p you can do so at my sponsorship page here!

My card today has been made using the sunny days paper kit from the creative cottage daisy chain farm collection which can be purchased here, these papers are really so lovely and easy to work with! I have also used this adorable Tilda image from the fairytale collection and a sentiment from CC designs swiss pixie spring collection. My flowers are wild ochid crafts with foliage ala mcgill branch punch (which broke!), pearls and lace from stash.

I used the pleating lace technique shown over on Just magnolia this wk so am entering this card into their Lace borders challenge (I'm loving this technique!) I also followed the sketch this wk over at sketch saturday and am also putting this into the magnolia down under challenge to use polka dots. I'm also popping this into the crazy 4 challenges theme this wk of using pleats on your card (either paper or ribbon in this case lace!)
Thanks loads for coming by and seeing my creation today, don't forget to pop over and check out the other fabulous DT creations and it's always a winner to have some pink on your card so enter the challenge too! Wish me luck for sunday (I'm gonna need it I'm not that fit lol!) Hugs to all Rebekah x

Breast Cancer Awareness saves lives. It is by being aware and knowing their options that women’s lives are saved. Yearly screenings (starting at age 30) and regular self-examinations can greatly increase the survive rate. The earlier the cancer is located the better the chances of survival.
