Breast Cancer Awareness Card

   Good morning my fellow crafters! Here at Erica's Craft Room we are turning pink from now until October 15 to show our support for Breast Cancer. We honor those who are currently fighting this disease as well as those who are survivors and remember those who have lost the battle.
     I don't think there is a family who has not been touched in some way. For me I have/had a grandmother, mother, mother-in law, aunt and close friend who have fought this disease. My brother in law lost a son to this as well. You are reading that correctly, men also can get breast cancer!
     Today we are to make a card ,of course using pink. I wanted to make a card that would express all the emotions attached to Breast Cancer. That is why I knew I would use the stamp sets from Pink By Design.
      I wanted to use the bra stamp but needed an image with a circular opening. Believe it or not , Tags Bags, Boxes and More 2 had just what I was looking for. It is the card window on page 60 and I cut it at 4". I love the scallop edge so I just inked with some distress ink. The sayings are from Breast Wishes. I embossed these with Versamark Dazzle ink and some Zing pink embossing powder.I also added some Liquid pearls around the window opening. You can purchase these supplies at Erica's Store Here
     I stamped the bra image from PBD "save the tatas" stamp set with Memento ink on X-Press It card stock and used my copic markers to color it in. The colors I used were: RV02,RV04, RV06, and C00,C0,C1 for the lace.
I love the background paper since it matches the bra perfectly and even has a nice sheen to it. It is from s.e.i. Bright Blossom stack. I also had some ribbon with the Breast Cancer symbol on it!
     I had some flowers in my stash that I misted with Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mauve lous and added a brad for the center.
     When I first started using my Cricut I enjoyed making envelopes so much that I made a bunch of them, lol. It just seemed so appropriate to include a pink enevelope! 
     Well that's it for today guys. I hope you enjoyed my card and let's keep on fighting to end this disease. Please be sure to stop back over at Ericas' Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team has to show you.
