Fight like a girl! MMSC69


I realize that NEXT month is breast cancer awareness month but I wanted a few of these on hand for my craft show next week and I thought the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge for this week would be a nice layout for them.  I used the sketch from MMSC69 and the ribbon & sentiment are digi stamps from Squigglefly.  The flowers came from Bird. I wish the glitter looked better in the photo because it's not uneven the way that it appears to be but, oh well.  I struggled a bit at first with what color to use with the pink.  They needed something to separate them because they were getting lost in each other.  Eventually, I came up with the gray.  It's more subtle than black but still made everything pop.  A friend of ours is a survivor...she may find one of these in her mailbox next month!























Card makings:

Stamps: Squigglefly, Bird's cards
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Stickles glitter glue: Tiara
Copic markers: RV10, RV21, G21, G94
Spellbinders: circles, big scalloped circle, fancy tag
Crystal heart and circles

Renee this is awesome. I really like the message the sentiment conveys of encouragement and strength. Love the flowers and embossing and pretty glittered edges. This card is just beautiful and the wonderful message behind it is as well. Great job with the sketch. Thank you so much for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Bear Hugs,
