Carol Fox, my teammate from the U.K., is in charge this week, and she is challenging us to use black, pink and purple in our projects for the Stampotique Designers' Challenge!  Really, Carol, black, pink and purple?  Seems a bit of an odd challenge to me, but, in the end, I loved it!  Here is what Carol had to say:
I love strong colors that really pop on the page, so I ask you to feature black, pink and purple on your make for the challenge this week.  Carol x
I wanted to make a tag/bookmark for a friend whose husband has had a stroke and is now in an extended care nursing home. She has a tough road ahead of her (as does he), so wanted her to know she needed to focus on getting through second, one minute, one hour, one day!

I used these Stampotique stamps in my project:

And here's my tag/bookmark:
