Pink isn't just a color,it's an ATTITUDE!

Hello there! Today I have a special card to show to you.  I had such a blast making this card and the image was  so fun to colour.  I found this image on  Little Scraps of Heaven Designs  and immediately fell in love with it.  I am a BIG supporter of Breast Cancer and as soon as I saw this image I knew that I needed to download and colour it!  Isn't the bear just the cutest??!!

I decided to make an easel card for this image and used my favorite colour - PINK!!! (can you tell I like pink, just a tiny little bit). 

I followed a few challenge guidelines in order to create this adorable card: follow a sketch for LSHD (check), use pink, navy & white (check), favorite colour (check-pink!), anything goes (check-easy!), digital image-anything goes (check & check), make an easel card (check) & make your own flower (check).  Wow that is a lot of stuff but I think the card turned out wonderfully! 

Normally I am my worst critic but I have to say I LOVE MY CARD! LOL!

Here is a frontal view of the card......

A view to see the easel....
