Breast Cancer Awareness Month is around the corner

Hello Crafty friends,

I hope all is well with everyone. Today I have a special card that I worked on using a Robert Jackson digi.
The Inks and Such challenge this week at 
is use PINK or the Breast Cancer Awareness theme.
Chana along with several other JDE designers have pledge to donate $0.25 to Breast Cancer Research for every entry on this week's challenge. Please post on your blogs, facebook and or twitter let your crafty friends know to join in on the challenge.

Here is my card and envelope to go with the card.
I used Robert Jackson's two digi images
Sunday Hat and Rose

  For the envelope I only used the Rose and cut off the stem.
If you are going to use glue such as glossy accents or any wet glue make sure not
to glue it on the flap area with adhesive because it will make it wet enough to seal
the envelope... 

I colored with Copic and Spectrum Noir markers.
I used a cuttlebug embossing folder
 The Bible verse was printed on regular printer paper. I cut 
several pages to add to the 3D look on the book. I used 
Spellbinders labels seven (2nd to largest die) I cut the pink
part of the book with the largest die but then it seemed too large
so I trimmed it down with scissors. 

I shrank the rose and printed 3 times then cut a few petals
to give it that 3D look.

I hope you enjoyed your visit. Make sure to participate in this week's challenge at
this week's sponsor is at JDE is Bugaboo Stamps.

Remember both women and men get breast cancer. 
So I won't say get the "girls" checked (this time). Just make sure to do self exams and get checked
by a professional especially if you have a family history.

Here are some fun Breast Cancer Slogans you can use on your card or project:

Big or Small save them all

A feel a day keeps the doctor away

Thanks for the mammories

Stop the war in my rack! 

Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death

Show you care, be aware

Real men wear pink

Have fun making something crafty and thank you so much for visiting.
