It´s my first breast cancer awareness card, but it won´t be the last because I´m making a few more. And while looking for a sentiment to add to my card before starting it I searched for "breast cancer quotes", and I come across some very bad comments about the campaigns of awareness, the pink color, the humorous quotes (they said) are not taking seriously the illness, and it left me thinking about it... Cancer is bad enough to take it slightly, true, but it´s bad enough as not to try to make the best of it. Life is short and most of the times it´s not a bed of roses, but through my personal experience I learnt to make the best of every situation, lift up my face to the sun and keep forward, so to be truthful to those brave woman who face cancer, I made my card pink because I care!
Glitterbabe) so generously gave. I colored the image with colored pencils and glittered the filigree with silver glitter. I used a scrap of cardstock (from my stash), a scrap of patterned paper (from Jaime), and a gorgeous paper I bought a few days ago, it has a wonderful texture and a bit of transparency.
I tied a ribbon on the front, embellished it with a rose (I made another one before here) and hand wrote the sentiment with a gray marker.
I hope you like it!
