Pink Ribbons For Mom

Hello and welcome.  This is a hard post to write.  Today I am sharing a card I made for my mom using Sassy Studio Designs Support A Cause digital image and Think Pink sentiments from last years October Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

After downloading and coloring my image, I layered the image and sentiments using pixie pink card stock before dry embossing a light pink panel then adding a scrap border left over from punching a couple of light mauve borders.  The only embellishments I added were some faux brads, a punched pink ribbon, and a pink marker spritzed over the main image.

Challenges entered:

Sassy Studio - DTBST #174
Link Up For Pink #9
PCP Cuttlebug Challenge #161
Love To Create Challenge #63 - Punches or Dies

Now the reason this post is hard to write, my mom lost her battle with breast cancer 19 years ago next month on May 19th.  She was only 41 - way to young to go.  So I have decided to make cards to help support and encourage others fighting cancer in memory of my mom.  Mom, I hope you like it.  I will be putting this one aside to mail off the MD Anderson Cancer Center during the yearly SCS card drive.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.
