What does this mean?

I saw the sketch challenge at Skipping Stones Design this week and immediately knew what I wanted to do.

I have friends who have NOT had a mammogram in, well,
let's just say a very long time.

Hopefully this card will reach one of them,
and the others (and you know who you are),
will see this post and consider what's at risk here.

I absolutely love this stamp set, Bras Volume 1.
It was my very first Skipping Stone,
and still remains my favorite!
Because I wanted to get to the heart of the problem,
I used a sentiment from another stamp set.
It just brought the message home so well.

I love the way the little stamped hangers popped off the embossed cardstock after I heat embossed them in black. And those bras are so much fun to stamp and color!  I can pretend I'm shopping at Victoria's Secret! I can also pretend I would buy a $60 bra! LOL!

So, no matter who you are reading this,
you are someone's daughter,
maybe someone's mother,
or sister...
Get a mammogram!
You DO matter!
And, go check out the challenge at Skipping Stones Design!
They have the coolest sketches and products!

DYSU Challenge #55!

This week the challenge is to use your
Pattern Papers!!!

Copic Marker Scrapbooking

6 Copic Ciao Markers (North/South America)

Martha Stewart punch (rest of the world)

My Little Shoebox

Surprise Goodie Bag

My card was paper pieced with pattern paper which is,
by the way, one of my favorite techniques!

Here's a close up of the pretty little image I used from Sparkle Creations, one of our previous sponsors.  She's called "Charlotte with a Rose".

I tied an embroidery bow around her waist and the flower stem.  I also cut a second tag and glued it over the first so that it would be more dimensional.

Enabling supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Sentiment: My Favorite Things, "Clearly Sentimental about Friendship".
Pattern papers:  DCWV, "Citrus"
Flowers: Prima Marketing
Copic Markers
