Hope You Can Cling To/Breast Awareness

I've done three challenges for SCS for today...they will also be part of several to be mailed and used by the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center for patients being treated for breast cancer.  Been there ~ done that.  I was diagnosised and treated for Breast Cancer in 2006.  Went through the chemo and radiation.  

The first is to make a holiday card with pink.  I picked Christmas!

I used Pretty in Pink with Certainly Celery for this card.  Snow Swirled is the stamp set I used.  I adorned it with the new jewels SU has.  I also stamped some snow flakes around it with Craft Whisper White.  The sentiment was punched with the retired key tag punch. I also used to score pal in the background.


My next we are to use lace and lingerie if possible.

I found this lace I had never opened with these nice pearls and thought it would do nicely.  I layered Whisper White, Pretty in Pink and Melon Mambo card stock.  I used the stamp set by Skipping Stones Design called Bra Volume #2 and stamped it in Melon Mambo ink.


Next up use brown as you would black.  Easy I love the look of Pink and brown together.

My cardstock is Early Expresso and Pink Pirouette.  I used the Scallop Trim Punch along the bottom and added pearls.  I used the Eastern Blooms stamp set and inked it in Pink Pirouette and Early Expresso.  I applied pearls to the flower branch as well.  For the sentiment I used the Curvy Verses Stamp Set.
