Pink with an Inspiration

Now knowing how I love the color Pink, it does not make me happy to know that I've been so busy this past month with getting ready for my Fall Camp Taz and a visit from our daughter and MonkeyMoo, that I have not participated in the first 3 Pink Challenges on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. I can positively report that the girls have had their annual squeezing though and that's a really good thing.  This week's challenge had as an added addition to the Pink an inspirational picture provided by the Sassy Miss Dawn. This is the picture that she posted.

I loved the shapes of the plates as well as the colors, so I decided to use the plates and the colors for my inspiration. First off, my task was to duplicate the shape of the smaller plates. Using a die cut shape from Penny Duncan Creations and doing some overlaying and cutting to create the small plate shape. The papers were all out of my scrap box and that's a REALLY good thing.

I had printed out 5 images to choose from for my card, but none of them was right for the plate shape. If you're focusing on plates, then you have to do food. It's a given.  I used this image called Birthday Cake Desire(and don't we all desire a good piece of cake). I've colored it with lots of Copics(see my SMT post if you don't beleive me). Sassy Cheryl has been on a roll of creating new images so be sure to come and check them out to the Sassy Cheryls Digi Store. She also has a store for colored images called Sassy Cheryls Illustrations for those times when you don't have time to color or you need to produce multiple cards.

The sentiment is a rubber stamp from Stampabilities stamped on more scrap paper, glued to a toothpick and stuck under the image.

I think I met the challenge and am more than happy with the results.
