My Pink Card

Using the color pink and the theme, "strength, love, hope, and faith", my card is made in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. This is a worthy cause as we are reminded to do self exams and have those mammograms. Prayers are with our love ones who are going through this battle now.

Wanting to try something different, I used a Martha Stewart Edge and Corner punch to make a pretty edge shape card. There is a great tutorial, Punch Around the Page on SplitCoastStampers.

My card started with a 5X10 inch size of white Colorbok cardstock. This is my first card using the punches and I am pleased with the results. I will have to try this again!

Cricut cartridges:
Forever Young - Lady silhouette - emblem key cut at 2 1/2 inch in white and using shift for the pink background
Home Decor -  Hope cut 1 1/4 in pink and shadow cut in white.
Cuttlebug Folders: Victoria and Textile
Martha Stewart - Topiary Edge and Corner Punch, Flower cut with Pop-up water lily punch, inks
Paper: Colorbok and The Paper Studio
Gemstone and ribbon from the treasure chest

I am honored to participate in several challenges this week sharing projects that are inspired by Breast Cancer Awareness. The design teams have beautiful work to inspire us. If you have time, make a card and give it to someone who may be going through this disease now. My card will be going to a dear sweet lady.
