October 2014 Diva Dare

  Pink Power- October Diva Dare

Welcome to October's Diva Dare!  This month's dare is entitled Pink Power in honor of October being breast cancer awareness month.  Many of us have had friends and family who have waged a battle against this disease, and over the past five years, I have had two very dear friends who have both battled and won their fight against breast cancer.     

So needless to say, I simply adore this new Pink Power set, and am totally smitten with this gorgeous silhouette!  One of the friends I mentioned above decided to go bald and beautiful during her chemo treatments, and I made this card with her in mind as she carried herself so proudly at a time when one does not exactly feel beautiful.   

For my card, I pulled out two pink papers and accented them with silver, some bling, scallops and a heart.  I couldn't resist using the Ribbon Die again as it is such a wonderful symbol.  The butterfly is a symbol of metamorphosis from dealing with being bald from chemo to new hair growth and a new lease on life after treatment.  

Two ways to win prizes for double the fun!

Win a $40 gift voucher to Verve! Take our Pink Power dare and link your card up to be eligible to win.  Entries must have pink on your card or project, be posted 10/10 or later, include at least one Verve product and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 10/26/14.  One participant will be randomly selected to win the gift voucher.  You can enter as many times as you like, but each card needs to be in a separate post.
