Believe


Did you notice something different about my blog? It's PINK! I went pink for October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Fortunately, breast cancer has not affected my family directly, but we have several friends who are survivors.

I made this card in honor of all those who have been affected by breast cancer. I used Causabella from Stamping Bella. I paper pieced her dress and the pink ribbon, and I colored the rest of her with my Prismacolor Pencils. I replaced the flower on her dress with a mini paper flower and a rhinestone. I sponged around the panel and the small oval with So Saffron ink. I used a ticket corner punch and paper piercing tool on the corners, then I added brads and ribbon to finish it!

Girls, this is your reminder to get your mammograms! And go pink for October! :)

Stamps: Causabella (Stamping Bella), sentiment (Michael's $1 bin), Paisley bg (SU!) Ink: Basic Black, So Saffron Cardstock: Barely Banana, Regal Rose, Whisper White (SU!) Paper: Stella Ruby, Romani (BasicGrey) Other: ticket corner punch, oval punches, Rich Regals brads, Crafters Tool Kit, stamping sponge, stampin' dimensionals (all SU!); mini paper flower (Making Memories), sage organdy ribbon, rhinestone Techniques: paper piecing, sponging, piercing
