By now everyone knows that October is know as Breast Cancer Awareness Month or Pink Ribbon Month. Personally, as a family, we have not been touched by this cancer but I do know how it has affected others around me.
I do believe that because of the high media coverage, that breast cancer has gotten during October and because of all the monies raised from selling Pink Ribbons and merchandising the brand, the number of people, female AND male surviving this cancer has risen enormously.
This is good.
I have a friend who has been just given the all clear from this awful disease. It was such a relief to hear and in part of celebration I sent her this card.
The image, is also a freebie that I have for ages it came in a pack of "Lili of the Valley" ready stamped images all I had to do was to colour it it.
I used pencils to colour the image, I blended the colours with some baby oil to soften the strokes. I used sukara pens to add sparkle to her dress and pearls.
Backing papers: Freebies from Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazines.
