Think Pink!

In November 1944, when my mother died of breast cancer at the age of 35, the diagnosis of any cancer was a death sentence. Treatments were experimental, and detection was almost always too late. If it was detected, the only way to deal with breast cancer was to remove the breast.

Great progress has been made in the treatment and detection of breast cancer, but there's still a lot of room for improvement in the detection and treatment, and prevention is a challenge.

House Mouse and Friends honours Breast Cancer Awareness Month with their new Challenge HMFMC205 "In the Pink", http://housemouse-challenge.blogspot.co.uk/2015/10/in-pink-for-house-mouse-challenge.html

This card features Amanda--House Mouse Sweet Scent stamp--doing her best to help us adopt a Pink Attitude. She's coloured with Stamping Up watercolour crayons, applied with a Stampin' Up Aquapen. The sentiment is a digital image from CS Designs, lightly sponged with SU Blushing Bride ink. The pink layer is SU Blushing Bride card stock, dry-embossed with the SU folder, Elegant Bouquet (retired). The base is SU Whisper White thick card stock.
