Ms. October's Challenge at Bombshell Stamps: Think Pink

It's confession time...I have been a bad, bad Bombshell and I am hanging my head in shame.  This is the first challenge I've joined in a very loooooooong time.  The thing is, I LOVE these stamps.  These images are so unique and so wonderful to work with, I could just play with them everyday and be perfectly content.  So why the lapse in challenges?  Don't know.  Just me being irresponsible and clinging to the coat tails of my super talented Bombshell Sistahs, I suppose.  Well, starting now,  I'm going to do gooder.  Yep, that's incorrect grammar, but hopefully it makes the point.

Once again I hadn't prepared a card for the newest challenge, so at 11:00pm I started to feel really guilty... and I mean REALLY guilty.  I thought "dang!", get your dang Copics out and color up a dang image, dang it!  Insert stronger profanity where appropriate.  Nope, stronger than that.  Yep, you got it ;D  Finally, at 2:30am I finished this card.  I'm hoping my Bombshell mojo is back and I'll be cranking out stuff on a more regular basis now.  

This challenge is brought to you by our current pin-up for October, Hey Hey Paula.  She's a talented lady with a fabulous blog, so you will want take a spin around her site while you're tooling around Blog Land. She is challenging everyone to Think Pink in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  What a great theme!  

I have used Rose's Portrait and Sacred Heart to create my card.  The images are colored with Copics and I have the colors set aside to add to this post later today.  It's 3:00am here now, so I best be packing away my guilt for the evening and call it a day.  Head to the Bombshell Stamps Blog and see all of the exquisite samples the Bombshells have dreamed up for you.  Nothing short of jaw-dropping!  Most importantly, don't forget to play along because there are prizes to be had in a random drawing at the end of the month.  

Until next time, stay crafty!
