If this comes through twice, forgive me this one time any way.

I made this card special for my sister who is a breast cancer survivor.  You never think your youngest sister would get something so dreadful and it pass you by.  She is a special lady, always taking care of others first.  She took care of our mother for 20 years before Mother passed away last September.  She needs an award for just that.


My inspiration for today’s card is from the CAS(E) this sketch Challenge. You can check out all the cards just click on the link.

I started with a card base of Blushing Bride.  I cut a 5-1/4 x 4 Whisper White panel and embossed using a retired Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  I stamped the images using Memento Black Ink on a panel of  Whisper White and then colored using Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz Stampin Write Markers. After coloring, I popped all on the embossed Polka Dot panel. I then popped the Polka Dot panel onto the Blushing Bride card base. 

The inside sentiment is also from the Ribbons of Courage stamp set.  If you would like more information about creating this card or any of the others on thus blog, please contact me and I will be happy to help.

That’s it for today!
