For the Birds

As you all know this month is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Over on Splitcoaststampers they are having their Hope You Can Cling To challenges and all the cards made for the challenges will be sent to the Breast Cancer site in Texas.  Since I am now part of the Dirty Dozen (yea…..I’m a ‘Dirty Girl’!) I am participating in the challenges and even hosting on later this month.  I made this for the first challenge which was “Show Me What You’re Made Of” where the challenge was to use thing that were your ‘go to’ style.  Oh…THAT was easy for me!

My ‘go to’ style stuff on this card is that it is most white (or very vanilla in this case).  Another part of it was that it looks like it is a small, square are but really, with the banners, it is a ‘normal’ size card.  Some quick details…

Base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 Very Vanilla and ran through the Stripes embossing folder.  Added a Real Red Banner, then a Marina Mist Polka Dotted Banner with a Crumb Cake Large Scallop edge under it.  I stamped the image using StazOn Jet Black ink on Watercolor paper, colored with markers (Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede), pierced a heart around it (another ‘go to’ thing for me) then added that little red heart from the 2-step Owl Punch.  This was added to the card front using dimensionals to finish it off.
