iCopicLover Challenge #6-Fight for a Cure

The colour combo for this challenge was to use pink, white and black and to include a pink ribbon somewhere on the card. I choose to use a Magnolia stamp coloured her dress pink and grey and did her hair black. The copics I used are: R81, R83, RV000, E11, E00, E000, R20, C9, C7, C5, C3, C2, C1, C00. I cut the image and frame with Spellbinders Nestabilities and used the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder to emboss the frame and then edged all pieces with black ink. I embellished the card with some pink roses and flowers and pale pink pearls. The wedding section is always a good place to check out flowers, pearls, etc. that can be used for embellishments. I added a sentiment done on the computer and then added the pink ribbon stamp to complete the card.
