Think PINK

I have a very special post to share with you today - my dear friend and fellow Crafty Pad DT member Dawn is having her head shaved to support her Mum who is in the midst of Chemotherapy treatment for Breast Cancer and is loosing her hair.  She is raising funds for the Breakthrough Breast Cancer Charity, chosen my her Mum.  You can read more about it on her blog and Just Giving Page please do pop over and take a look.

We are having a Special Month Long Challenge over at The Crafty Pad with the theme Breast Cancer Awareness and /or Think PINK not just a little pink but lots of PINK so please visit The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog and join in, there are lots of fab prizes on offer.

This is the card I have made using one of the fab FREE images that you can download from The Crafty Pad:

The papers are from my Willow Sketchie Polly Pickleberry CD and everything has been layered onto Core'dinations card stock.  I paper pieced the images with a smaller version of the papers that I have used for the background and cut the image down to create the smaller bra.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

This is the inside of my card, I have decorated it to complement the front:

Tools:  Crafter's Companion - Die'sire Scalloped Tags, X-Cut - Border punch
