CFC73 - For the Girls


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and CAS-ual Fridays is hosting their most recent challenge  "For the Girls".  I wanted to create something witty that would cheer up a friend or family member in need but I was drawn to putting a butterfly on my card.  So I punched a butterfly out on baby pink vellum (I love the look of vellum butterflies) and I made a tiny breast cancer awareness ribbon to place on its body.  I hope that I never need to use this card.  As a young girl I lost my grandmother to cancer. She first had breast cancer, than bladder cancer and then finally bone cancer.  

As uncomfortable as they are, remember your mammograms ladies!



All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  White, Sweet Blush
Stamps: Turning a New Leaf, Beautiful Butterflies
Ink:  Sweet Blush
Tools: Linen & Canvas Impression Plate
other: butterfly punch (Martha Stewart), pink ribbon

Oh my goodness, your grandma had to go through too much :( What a beautiful card, though, I love the little ribbon you made for the butterfly with the bling on top. I hope you never have to use the card either!
