January Reminder

It's a new year and the 17th so it's time to check those girls!

I have friends who are battling this horrible disease at the present time, so please get your mammograms so you are not added to the count and if you are one of my friends fighting this horrible disease, Fight like a Girl!
As I have said before I lost my mom to breast cancer at a young age and I am a survivor myself so cancer hits home with me and I do not want any more of my friends to have to fight this horrible disease.

Cancer can be beaten if caught early so please do self exams and get your mammograms once a year if thats what the doctor suggests. You can also help find a cure by purchasing products from the Calling All Sistahs line where 50% of the profits go towards breast cancer research.

To make my card I started with a white top folding card base and a piece of watercolor paper. Using the Original MISTI and the Full on Floral stamp I inked it up using Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder, next I taped off the sides using green painters tape because it seems to seal better. I watercolored the panel using Daniel Smith watercolors and then removed the tape to give me the edges. 
To make the shaker element to my card I used the Ruffled Ribbon Fri-die and cut it out of my floral panel. I used the Word Ribbon set for the background. Using the Misti again, I placed the word ribbon in the negative space from where I cut out the ruffled ribbon and then picked it up with the lid and inked it up with "Be Mine" ink from Catherine Pooler. to finish the card I added some sequins from the Sisterhood Sparkle and a few more that I had on hand. 

I also have a new code to get 15% off your order.
