Link up for Pink!!!

As many of you know, if you're a regular reader of my blog, I lost my Nan this year to Breast Cancer!!! It was the saddest day of my life and I miss her everyday!!! So the Link Up for Pink blog and Linky Party is something I love to be a part of it!!! I have won quite a few things leading up to the Linky Party so I'm hoping to use those soon but the other day I saw the link to some wonderful freebies on the Link up for Pink facebook page, which are actually facebook timeline headers by Touched by a Butterfly. I had the perfect idea for one of them so I printed it off and this is what I made:
I think I am going to frame this when I find the right frame!! There was no colouring involved with this card,  a first for me!!! I embossed the base cardstock then inked over the dots.. I also inked around the edges with the pink ink!! I then picked a photo of Nan which was taken last christmas at our family get together (which Nan always loved organising). I then found a sentiment and added the flowers with the rhinestones!! And not that you can see it but I went over the breast cancer ribbons the bears are holding with a clear glitter pen!!!
I'll be back a few more times with cards for this amazing cause and I hope that you will join in too!! AS well as LUFP I am entering this card into the following challenges:
