Time to get them checked........

.....the boobies, that is! Breast Cancer Awareness Month is upon us and it is time to go and get them squeezed between the two cold plates of metal. Small pain for big gain each year! I feel like a lump of hamburger meat being man(woman)handled onto a BBQ plate and then they twist it and squeeze it and you have to hold still and not breath (as if you could breath while that is happening) and then release! Other one now! Oh Joy, Oh Bliss!!!

wants us to make a card for Breast Cancer so here is mine, using the specially made for us in Australia Breast Cancer stamp set - Ribbon of Courage. There is a great die set with this too but I chose to just stamp this one.

I used some SU white card with an embossed image of flowers as a background and embossed it some more using white embossing powder on the ribbon and the word 


I used some of my TH Distress ink Oxide to add three colours to the card with the help of s water spray and  paintbrush. I also added some Pickled Raspberry ink over some areas to highlight them as well.

Polished off the inks with a tissue when card was dry.

Layered up with some pink on pink card and added three heart sequins,

It looks better than the photo's do - at a distance you can hardly see the ribbon and word but as you come closer they begin to pop.


and then go to Crafting with Dragonflies for the new Challenge

Lovely card, Susan! Great design and sweet colors.
Sadly I lost my beloved DAD three month ago, and I'm not feeling brave enough to make cards with that theme. I can't think to cancer without crying :(
