WCMD and Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Here's a card I made today for World Card Making Day and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This image is the current free images from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

I reduced the size of the free sentiment and repeated it on a page, printing it on pink paper to use as DP on the panel. The 'flowers' are cricut cut, a little stitching on the stems and liquid applique for the centers.

Challenged entered: Odd Bird Planet (via Durcan Designs)

Don't forget, you can use this image for any awareness cause you like, changing the colors. There are so many causes and awarenesses designated by the various colored ribbons and combinations of colors. Here is a partial list of more common ones as well as a couple of links that list many, many more, solid color and combinations.
