Think Pink: PPA Challenge

I have been wanting to send my sister Dayna a pink card since she is a breast cancer survivor. The PPA design team had just the perfect challenge! I am so proud of my sister for walking through her cancer diagnosis and treatment with grace and determination. She is truly an inspiration to me. Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette are my pink colors for this card. I could not find the plain pink M&M's anywhere, so I used pink jelly beans for the fun Sweet Treat Cups set in the heart Sweet Centers stamp. A little Melon Mambo ribbon, a few swirls and my sentiment mounted on a Cricut label says just the way I feel about Dayna. I have several other friends who have battled this disease with faith and determination. I am inspired by them as well.

What a sweet card! Your sister is an inspiration! It is funny, I used the same set for my pink card (minus the candy) AND I have a daughter named Dana....and she insists on spelling it "DAYNA"!!!! Have a sweet day!
