PaperCutz Challenge make a card, LO or craft project for Breast Cancer Awareness using any colors you'd like. We tend to think of pink ribbons for breast cancer awareness, but any message of hope or support is what's needed. For Challenge 63 I made a Halloween card for awareness and this week I went with a more traditional approach.
I started with PP from HOTP and used the large Stampin' Up medallion with gold embossing powder to create the background. I stamped this wonderful lady (I use her A LOT!) and embossed with black and cut her out. I did use a traditional pink ribbon and jazzed it up with some bling (creative imaginations).
I don't usually show the inside of my cards, but I think this one came out really well. I repeated the background paper and embossed and cut out three more feathers with a little bling. I distressed the edges of everything with Tea Dye Distress Ink. When I look at this card I think of the song "I am woman" especially the "hear me roar" chorus.
So, for all my friends and readers, take the time to do self-exams and get mammograms per the guidelines. Let's not forget men can be afflicted with this disease as well. So, this week let's make sure we "save the girls and save the boys!
