In the Pink - Part 2

Hidy ho, crafty peeps!

It's the midway reminder for House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, and I'm back with part 2 of my projects for the "In the Pink" challenge that is currently running!

...in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month (which just so happens to be... October).

I am tasking everyone to come up with a project that can be ANY theme
 but one where PINK is the predominant color.

Here are my other 2 projects for this challenge. I kept to the Breast Cancer Awareness theme. But, you don't have to...as long as your entry is predominantly PINK.

 Tu-Tu Important to the Ta-Tas

I used the adorable Ballerina Baby stamp for this card. Stamped it twice and colored up the little cuties with my Prismacolor pencils. I fished out my Copics, again, and used them to stipple the background. Then I shoved them back in their case. I added a THICK coating of glitter to the little meece's tu-tus, diecut out around them with a Spellbinders label die, added some lacey punched elements and a ribbon/bow and called it FINIS! 

And yes, I came up with the sentiment myself.

For my final project in this Parade O' Pinkness, I used the Making Prints stamp (altered up a little) on white cardstock. I colored him up with my Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut him out within a millimeter of his little mousey life. My goal with this card was to make it pink...but NOT girly. How'd I do?
