Graph'it Challenge #16: Shades of Grey & Party In Pink!

Hi everyone!

It's time for a new challenge at the Graph'it Markers blog and it's the turn of Team B (that's me, Cara and Kevin) to provide you with some Graph'it inspiration this week! Our challenge this week is SHADES OF GREY, so we want to see you colour with greys!

I used the Saturated Canary image called "Boobie Love" for my card. I was lucky enough to grab this image back in March 2012 when Krista was giving her away for free on her blog, but you can buy her HERE from the Saturated Canary store for only $0.01!

Now you may be a bit confused about the "Party in Pink" text that I've added to my card?  Well, I made this card especially for a special lady who I'm sure many of you will know - the super sweet Jacqueline Beddingfield.  Anyone who is Facebook friends with Jacque will know all about her passion for Zumba!  Jacque has been involved in a "Party in Pink" zumbathon charity event this past weekend, raising money for breast cancer.  To show my support and to say thank you to Jacque for the time and effort she so tirelessly gives to this, I wanted to make a card for her.  I coloured the image to look like Jacque and added the "Party in Pink" logo so hopefully it looks like Jacque at her Party in Pink zumbathon!! Jacque is taking donations for another week, so if you'd like to donate to this very worthy cause, click here.

I would also like to enter this card into the 3rd Annual Link Up for Pink linking party. This online party is running from 1-14 October, so if you'd like join in, you still have a couple of days to create something for this worthy cause.

So now it's your turn to get creating! You have until Sunday 20th October 2013 at noon GMT to enter our Shades of Grey challenge As always, there is an awesome prize up for grabs and the lucky winner of this challenge will be announced on the blog on Friday 25th October.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
