Add Pink & A Ribbon at Jellypark Friends

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice

Hello my happy blog friends! it is FRIDAY!!!! woooooooooo hoooooooooooo! that makes this a great day, no matter the weather! ;)

we have fun new releases and a new challenge over at Jellypark Friends. my dear friend, Sara Moreno, joins the Design Team for the holiday term. She was with us last month as a guest designer and agreed to stay on. be sure to stop by her blog and give her a hearty hello!

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, our challenge is to add pink and a ribbon to your papercraft creations. my card is a bit different take on the challenge. I saw a challenge going on over at Hope You Can Cling To on Split Coast Stampers for a masculine card using pink. Do you realize that almost 2000 men get breast cancer every year as well? this card is to honor them.

I took the 'trees' image and printed it twice. I then punched what are called spotlight images from one print, colored only those, and then popped them up on the main digital print. this creates such a neat focal point! I also sponged the inchies to add more texture and color. papers are Basic Grey Indian Summer, the glitter leaf is Making Memories, buttons are from my vintage stash, a bit of cardboard was torn and inked, then a wired ribbon finished the card.
