Hello, friends! It was a cold, damp, deary day here in New Jersey...it's starting to get dark earlier and earlier, and signs of fall are appearing all around. (I hate to say it but I actually saw Christmas wrapping paper in a Barnes and Noble book store last night. Ugh...not yet!)
It was a perfect evening to make a card for the current challenge at CAS-ual Fridays in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. The theme this week is For The Girls: Create a Clean And Simple card that celebrates the women in your life.
I received a wonderful sentiment stamp a while back (from the talented and very thoughtful Donna Mikasa) and thought this would be the perfect occasion to ink it up. I broke out my Bubble Gum Midtone Ink and the Hero Arts/Sizzix Stripes and Frame set, added the With Hope sentiment in black, and mounted it onto a black card base. I then pulled out an already painted and fussy cut Traditional Butterfly from my stash, added some glitter to sections of the wings and a black gem on the body, and mounted it on the card.
By the way, have you seen the latest news at CAS-ual Fridays? Do you know they are
