October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a time when we bring awareness to the fight for a cure. It’s especially a time when organizations show their support for fundraising and awareness. So as you could imagine, I was pleased to find that many crafters were also participating by creating fun challenges for their readers. I decided to join in on the fun too.
Robyn, My Pink Stamper, asked her viewers to join her in a Think Pink challenge in which she asked crafters to use pink patterns as a base for a card. Here is the design I came up with to contribute to the challenge.
I cut 1 inch squares using several papers and created a pink grid. I added in a ribbon and used a back-folding technique for extra texture. I used my circuit die cutting machine to create some cancer ribbons and a heart. Lastly, I used a simply sentiment and stamped it in black.
I think it turned out pretty well for one of my first attempts at a greeting card! More than anything, I simply enjoy participating in a noteworthy cause.
