Lexi's Creations Challenge #50 - ‘Pink for Boobies’

I am so excited to have been chosen as a guest designer over at Lexi’s Creations for this week’s challenge.  The theme for Challenge #50 is ‘Pink for Boobies’.  Since two of my sisters and two of my friends recently battled cancer, this was very dear to my heart.  I wanted to create a card to celebrate those that are survivors. 

I used some very special paper perfectly themed for this card and layered it on maroon, deep pink, and a white card base.  I used the digital sentiment, Special Friend, from Fairy Dust Crafts, and printed it on light pink cardstock. 

I cut it out with a die and sponged darker pink ink around the edges before layering it on two strips of lace I added to the middle of the card.  I used my Cricut and a new SVG to cut out the ribbon and sponged it with darker pink ink to give it some dimension.  I used foam squares to pop it up to the right of the sentiment and then added some pearl swirls.  I really do thank God for the survival of those who are so dear to me.

Don’t forget to go to Lexi’s to see what the designers there have created for you and all the details to enter this challenge.
