Day 3: Think Pink

The card I'm showing today, is from a set that I am just in love with. Its called Think Pink (in honor of breast cancer awareness) and a portion of each sale of this set will go to the Susan G. Komen for the cure charity.
Here is a blurb from the Flourishes:
When Flourishes started to design this one-of-a-kind set, Jan, Nancy and
Sharon - the owners of Flourishes - knew they wanted to use this set to help
others in the fight. That's why a portion of each stamp set sold will go to
help STAMP OUT breast cancer and support Susan G. Komen for the Cure. This
grassroots effort has, to date, invested more than $1 billion in the fight
against breast cancer. Susan G. Komen for the Cure is an effort that is
working to save lives, empower people, and energize science to find a cure. We
couldn't think of a better group to join in the fight! If you'd like to read
more, simply visit www.komen.org.
Fact: More than 1,000,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed this year.
For my card, I stamped the t-shirt image onto white card stock, then masked it a few times, cut out the adjoining shirts and mounted it onto kraft card stock. I then took different sentiments and ribbons and stamped them onto the t-shirts. I wanted the "thinking of you" sentiment to stand out, so I created it using stickers. It was only perfect to add pink satin ribbon, and to color in the ribbons on the shirts using Copic markers. This is a clean and simple card, but I LOVE it...this set is so inspiring.
For your chance to win this set, head on over to the Flourishes Newsletter they are having a one day only blog candy! See you all later at the release party at 9 central on SCS in the Flourishes forum!!

What a fabulous idea to have the group of T Shirts lined up, it's like they're all standing beside each other supporting one another! Awesome idea Latisha!
