This weeks challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is all about Awareness! With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, it's the common theme for these types of cards, and we make them to show our support for those that are struggling.
It's so hard to think of someone going through a life threatening battle...I admire them and their strength, but it saddens me to watch their struggle without being able to help in any way. So I offer my support and I lift them up in prayer.
Our sponsor this week is Really Reasonable Ribbon, a perfect sponsor to have for this challenge.
For my card, I used the adorable Save the Hooters image from Whimsie Doodles. I bought this image last year and never got the chance to use it. So I knew it had to go on this card!
I used some papers from the Little Darling Summer Sorbet collection and used my sewing machine around the edge (still need lots of practice with that...not sure why the corners are being rounded...). Then I took a strip of wide white ribbon and pleated it across the bottom while running it through my sewing machine. It turned out so awesome! I'm very proud of that :)
I layered a light pink ribbon on the white, and then a strip of pink twine on top of that. The button has been tied with the same pink twine and then I tucked the flagged sentiment in behind the button.
The fancy bra in the image has been covered with my glitter pen and some clear glitter so that it has lots and lots of sparkle.
Be sure to stop by and see the rest of the fabulous DT creations! Then pull out your awareness ribbons and join in the fun!!
