Something To Say For Breast Cancer Awareness

by Joanne James11. October 2014 20:20

A quick card from me today; I managed to squeeze in an hour of crafting this afternoon and thought I would have a play with this week's challenge over at Colour Q:

The colours for this week's challenge were chosen in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and there is some great Design Team inspiration, so I thought I would have a little go at creating my own 'think pink' card. Here's my card:

I used a Basic Black card base and top mat and substituted Pretty in Pink with Pink Pirouette for my interim layer and embellishments. I stamped my sentiment from 'Something to Say' in Versamark and heat embossed it in Silver, then added a row of punched hearts and a symbolic pink ribbon (retired, but you could use the new seam binding ribbon in the same colour) to the front of my card. The other half of the sentiment was stamped in black on the inside of the card, along with a pink heart:

A very simple card, but one that would be perfect to reach out to someone suffering from breast cancer and remind them you are there for them - and with breast cancer rates so high, unfortunately, most of us know someone that would be a worthy beneficiary of a card like this.

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Thanks Wendie - simple, but I'm sure very fitting for someone to show support to a cancer sufferer.
