Good evening folks. Just popping by to say that there is a brand new challenge over at Perfectly CAS.
As it says in the title, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so I've used the theme to create this card.
As some of you may know it is a cause close to my heart, it was why I started making cards. Whilst recovering from surgery, my friends decided I needed an outlet so we got together to create cards to sell to raise funds for Breast Cancer Care. The bug bit, so to speak and I haven't stopped. My style has evolved and my stash has grown exponentially!
The cute die cut ribbon was cut from the original die that one of my friends found from Provocraft, we used it to mark the back of all our cards that went to raise funds. We sold them at work but since we have all retired, moved away it doesn't get as much use as it once did, but I dusted it off and cut one more ribbon from white card, which I then coloured using Copics.
The pink base card was in the stash, as was the panel of textured card. I cut it to allow my sentiment, STAMPlorations, to be stamped and embossed in white and placed the ribbon across the gap.
So how will you be inspired by the cue card? If you are in need of some more inspiration why not check out the rest of the DT and then join us, why don't you.
