Pink Hope -- Breast Cancer Awareness -- for Delightful Challenges

It's Thursday, and time for a new challenge at Delightful Challenges. This week, we are to use our favorite color.  I chose to use pink, one of my favorites to color with, and since this is October, also very popular for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

This sweet bear is called "Pink Ribbon Boo Boo Bear", and can be found in the Digital Delights store.  I colored the bear with Copic markers, then used a couple Spellbinder dies on it.  The designer paper and brad are from My Mind's Eye.  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. 
One of the residents in the nursing home where I work has a daughter struggling with breast cancer.  I am going to give this card to my resident so she can give it to her daughter.  I think they both will like that.  This daughter will not win her fight with breast cancer.  She and her mom are walking a very difficult road right now.  They are showing incredible courage and strength. 
Come join our "favorite color" challenge this week at Delightful Challenges.
This week's sponsor is:
Prize: Two six-marker sets of Spectrum Noir markers
