October Step Sister Breast Cancer Awareness Card

October 2014

Today I am a Step Sister! (Guest Designer) at The Sisterhood of Crafters. This week the theme is Think Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness.  The challenge is to use PINK.  I not only used pink but I used My Favorite Things Choose Hope clear stamp set.  I embossed the images and highlighted with a Wink of Stella pen.

But first I started with a Sizzix Bigz Flips card die.  I now have a Sizzix thinlits set but have not tried it yet.  It is a little more decorative and has dies to fit all the parts.

Here I used washi tape along the edges.  I also used the Creative Memories ribbon punch with some bling.  The other side has K & Co butterfly stickers and bling.

Here's another version.

Close up of the Wink of Stella highlights although it is stamped on shimmer paper and is barely noticeable.

I love the sentiment.

 I would like to enter this in the following challenges:

Don't forget to enter the original challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters open until 10/20!!!
