My Card for a Cause


Hello! Several challenge blog this week are hosting pink ribbon challenges for Breast Cancer Awareness month. This image is this week's freebie over at Bugaboo Stamps. She also has a bunny with a ribbon. Cute! I've made this card with no designer paper according to the Digi Doodles challenge this week. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be, and probably isn't the best example of my work. But. . .I had left out a part of the equation that I use pretty much to distraction! It was fun to try!



I popped the face and paw of the bear again with the glue dots stacked together. I like that height pretty well. I guess I should find a glue dot that is that height so I don't use up all my glue dots double time!


I made my own flowers, but there again, I don't think they don't look as good as with designer paper. Distressing was a feature of a couple of challenges too, so I edge distressed with Walnut Stain Distress ink and also used my paper distresser on some of the edges.

I actually made the sketch myself. I'd like to work on it a little more, and then I'll post a drawing of my sketch for you to try. 

Getting ready for Halloween? Us too! The kids are counting the days!! :-)

Thanks for looking and happy stampin'!
