Fight Like a GIrl

It was after mindnight last night, when I found out that CardzTV was hosting their challenge for Breast Cancer Awareness (#37). What an important challenge theme! 

Before anything else, this card was inspired by a tough, fun, punk chick who is one heck of a survivor. I wish I saw her more. 

I started with a Simply Betty Stamp. I cut out the white background to mat on black. I spent my time chalking, coloring, and embellishing this stunning Betty. I chalked her hair black, and I added silver strands. The hair band is made completely from a dark pink glitter pen. I used a pink marker for the dress, but then I applied a clear glossy accent over the dress to give the dress variation in color, and shine. Her stockings alternate in three different shades of pink and were applied with the same clear glossy accent. 

The foam die cut arrow draws your eye to the sentiment. 
The die cut is a little reminder to say I love you. (Cricut, Phrases). 

The Cut it Up Challenge blog was to use to use pink and a die cut on your entry (#29).
Thank you to 356 Cards Challenge blog which gave me the idea to cut around the stamp (#278).
FInally, Betty was also entered into the Sister Act Card Challenge (#27).
