Pink Bobby Socks

Hello.  Today I'm sharing a card I made for one of the Splitcoaststampers Hope You Can Cling To punch/die challenges and for the annual Link Up For Pink blog challenge.  Having lost both my mom and grandmother to breast cancer, I'm definitely a supporter of breast cancer research.

My card was made in memory of my mom whom grew up in the 50's with the bobby socks, Elvis, juke boxes, drive in's, etc.  I started off by printing a Sassy Studio Design bobby sock digi onto white card stock then coloring it with prismacolor markers before die cutting it with a spellbinders oval die.  Then I die cut several music notes before dry embossing a couple of layers of pink card stock using an allegro embossing folder with my big shot and sponging regal rose ink over the embossed musical notes before assembling my card.  The final touch was to add some Heidi Swap photo corners and Recollections music note brads to die everything together.  This sassy girl sure looks like my mom in some of her high school photos.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.
