Scrapy Land Challenge #28


Hello Blogging Buddies!!

Today is the 3rd Wednesday of October and that means the start of a new challenge at Scrapy Land Challenge Blog!!  The theme is:  Embossing (heat or dry) PLUS use any Scrapy Land brand die. Scrapy Land has over 40 brands of dies to choose from!

Here is my card for Scrapy Land Challenge #28:


Since October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month I wanted to make a card for Breast Cancer Awareness.  For my A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of my card, I inked the edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink.  Next I took a piece of Core'dinations White Washed paper and ran it thru my Vagabond using the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations embossing folder and then I used my sanding block to reveal some of the pink under the white wash.  Next I took my Memory Box Catalina Wreath die and cut out three different shades of pink and combined them together to make a pink wreath.  Next I took my Die-Versions Build An Owl die and cut out several different shades of  pink paper and made my Ms Pink Owl and added that to the wreath on my card.  Next I took some pink gems and added them to the eyes of Ms Pink Owl and to some of the flowers on the wreath.  Then I cut out my Die-Versions Hint of Lime Font in hot pink and added my sentiment to some light pink paper and then cut that into fish tailed banners and added that to my card.  I used pink button brads on the ends of  the top banner.  I will be donating all the different Breast Cancer Cards I have made this month to Fighting Pretty a non-profit organization that helps women feel strong and beautiful during and after cancer treatments.

Now it is your turn to create something for Scrapy Land Challenge #28.  The winner, which is chosen by the Design Team, will receive a $15 Gift Certificate to go shopping at Scrapy Land.  This challenge will run through Sunday, November 1st.  Don't forget to check out what the other SL Design Team members have created for this challenge here.  Plus you can always go to the Scrapy Land Pinterest Boards for more inspiration.
