Link Up For Pink

This banner was a huge under taking and was created as an entry to Cricut's /HSN banner contest for their Sept. 26th launch of the new E2. I was terribly disappointed that it wasn't chosen as one of the winners since Provo Craft supports Breast Cancer & with Oct. just a few days away, I thought this might help get the message across to support this wonderful cause.
The banner was created with the Pink Journey cartridge (got it when I bought by Expression in Oct.). The card stock, from a "Me & My Big Ideas Pad"   is beautiful and was multi- layered with paper in  Pink ribbons/glitter,stripes etc. I also used the  Sophisticated Cartridge, page 65) with shadow to create the layered frames. The runner was created from "Pink Journey Cartridge" and her clothes were custom fit (tedious job)!
The tuille  pink rose ribbons were from Making Memories purchased @
 I hope you like the banner  and  please leave a comment telling me how Cancer has unfortunately touched your life or someone you know.
