Just Pink Magnolia

We all know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. It is a good month to be reminded, my friend Kim was diagnosed with Breast Cancer 2 years ago in October. So when we think about this month we also celebrate that Kim's breast cancer was caught early with breast self exams, mammograms, and on to a biopsy.
I had to join this months challenge to celebrate Kim. This card will go to her.  The charm on the ribbon says "Inspire", Kim inspires me. I don't think it needs any more of a sentiment on it than that!!!!  I was excited to see that was having a Pink card challenge. This card is for the week 78 challenge here.  On to the card!!!
I really wanted
to showcase the papers that I got from Making Memories Think Pink, so I didn't go overboard on the layering.  The scallop punch is from EK Success and the branch one from Martha Stewart.

I cannot remember
where I got the little inspire charm. It has been in my stash waiting for the perfect card!!! The flowers are from Recollections at Michaels. They are the best bargain I have found for Mulberry flowers, and believe me, I have bought many!!!  I inked the scalloped oval nestie shapes with CTMH carnation pink ink.

The inside needed
to be left fairly simple as I will take this card to work and have my staff sign it along with me to give to my friend Kim. We all went through the surgery, and radiation with her and all celebrate her remission!!
