Yes! We can fight cancer and we can WIN! And we can show our strength in PINK CAMO !!!! Pink is not only my favorite color...but the color of October...and a camo version is inspirational to fight, fight, fight!! I'm inspired by so many who I know are currently battling breast cancer as well as other types....and THEY ARE MY HEROES!!! So let's show them that we'll be fighting with them side by side!!!

You can use pink camo ribbon, patterned paper, digital paper....or you can even make your own camo paper!!! I made my own background paper by stamping a solid image repetitively in many shades of pink ink!! It's that simple! You can also use a pink and black re-inker and swirl it on white ribbon or white flowers and make your own pink camo design!!

Such a fun challenge and it was a challenge, lol! I made my camo out of fun foam. The first time I did it the blobs were too big, but I trimmed it down and I think it looks like camo this go round. And, of course, I had to use something sparkly for Lee. ;)

Who knew camo could be so much fun! I guess you did Lee! Here's my card. I used three different shades of pink and a solid heart stamp.

Lots of Love

DandI93 10-05-2013 06:01 AM

Lee, at first I totally mess up the challenge and did it in blue.. Now I can't find where I can change the category to the 2013 HYCCT. I went up and down the list when I edited my upload and could not find it... HELP... thanks

Never mind, I found it..... WOW that was tough... It is much easier to get it right the first time.....

Lee, why is it still showing both of the blue cards in the HYCCT gallery? You see the pink one when you click on it.... Maybe because I edited it so much this morning....I am so sorry for that.... But I did get it... hugs

It takes a while for the gallery to catch up when it's busy.....but also sometimes it just shows up to you that way because of the cookies on your computer. No worries...it's all good! I'll be commenting away soon!!! :D

If you find out you tell me! ;)

Greywolf 10-05-2013 10:33 AM

I tried to be "creative" today. At first I was stumped by the camo challenge. I decided to use Gelatos, but had no idea where I'd go with that. As usual, this card was built up from one idea to the next. When I write papers, I always prepare the outline AFTER I write. Same thing with card design. :D

Thank goodness there are digital papers out there on the web. A trip to Michael's this morning did not yield ribbon or paper for this challenge.

muzbysmom 10-05-2013 11:47 AM

I had a BLAST making pink camo! My photo turned out a little dark. I really did use pinks (Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Rose Red (dark pink), Strawberry Slush, and Melon Mambo. I used the splotchy stamp from Gorgeous Grunge (SU) and like how it turned out!

I used stencils and a sponge then created a mini collage in one corner.

Loving this challenge! However, after 3 ways to not make camo,, I decided to come back later and try again. Thanks for a real challenge, Lee! I needed a push, because finding a way that works will be great for future projects!

As always, Lee, your challenge was so fun. I am so glad I found these stickers the other day and acted on the purchase! :)

Great challenge. It's fun to see the different stamps everyone has used to make their camo background.

StampinAK 10-05-2013 01:51 PM

Today's challenge had me stumped for a little while. Thanks to Mrslaird for the tip on using fun foam for the camo bg.
