In keeping up with Breast Cancer Awareness month, out design Team Leader Vicki Chrisman, has challenge us to create something with that theme in mind. We are to use the "Support the Girls" stamp set from Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamp or the Girlfriends Images and Journal Notes or both. This stamp set was designed to help raise funds for the Susan Koman foundation for breast cancer research and Crafty Secrets is donating $1.00 for every set ordered.
For this challenge I made a card using an image for the Girlfriends Images and Journal Notes and also used the Breast Cancer Ribbon stamp from the Support the Girls stamp set. The image was mounted on to a Purely Promegranate cs. Used the Martha Stewart Lace Border punch to cut the cs mat. This was them mounted on to my BG designer paper manufactured by K&Company from the line of Brenda Walton - Chelsea Pink Flat Paper. I sprayed Glimmer Mist's Tattered Rose all over the layers of my card and sponged the edges with Purely Pomegranate and Walnut Stain to distress the paper. I also cut out some flowers from the dp and added it on to the corners of the image panel and topped it off with liquid embossing. Stamped the Breast Cancer ribbon stamp onto my dp, cut it out and added some liquid embossing. This along with some ribbon was added to the left side of the card. Used a Gold mettalic gel pen to the enges of all the layers of the card to further distress the look of the card.
