Awareness

Hi everyone a card today for the SCS colour challenge of Pink, Black (which I forgot about and missed out!!!) and white. Every week this month there'll be a pink colour included in the challenge as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I make a click almost every day for my friend on the Breast Cancer website where clicks count towards free mammograms. I'll be making some more of these cards to go with this one and they'll be sent out to women who are suffering with this awful disease. The card is also for Papertake Weekly which has a lovely sketch by Katharina to follow and also for Cute Card Thursday where the challenge this week is Buttons and Bows. Hopefully the breast cancer awareness ribbon bows in the background paper will count for that element.

I used a Breast Cancer Awareness digital kit by Summer Driggs which is a free download, she has lots of other lovely kits and very generously lets anyone download them. I think I found the link on Madge's blog so thanks for that. I printed out the two papers I've used and layered them on white card and a scalloped nestie. The buttons are also from the kit which I've printed and cut out. I stamped the Inkadinkado bird and sentiment in Ancient Page ink. The white oblong panel is embossed with the cuttlebug swirls folder. TFL.

It's a work of art Chris - a perfect card for such a worthwhile cause. My baby sister lost her battle to this disease when she was just 42 and have some good friends that are fighting it just now.
