Have you made your appointment yet?

[Edited to add: this card is now winging it's way to a woman who is just starting chemo for breast cancer. You do not want to be that woman--get that mammogram!]

For your mammogram, that is? I have, so if you haven't, please do it! Along that theme, I have another Breast Cancer Awareness Month card for you. This time I'm using Flourishes' stamps and this card qualifies for Flourishes' A Season That Sparkles Challenge. I'd love to win all the October releases! WOWZA! Hear that, Lady Luck? I want 'em, LOL! I'm also using the sketch from Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday challenge for this week, but I'm thinking I can't "double dip" IYKWIM.

My inspiration for this card was that little ribbon charm. That's what made me decide on pink and silver for my colors. Since I didn't have any pink and silver patterned paper, I made my own. The base layer is Pretty In Pink on which I stamped the Vintage Wallpaper background stamp with Versamark and embossed it with Ranger fine detail silver powder. The second element was embossed the same way using the larger flourish from the Ornamental Elements set. Finally, the focal image was stamped with the shirt from Think Pink-Fight Like a Girl set. It was stamped on Gina K Pure Luxury card stock and colored with Copic markers. The pink ribbon was done the same way, cut out, and put on the shirt, which was in turn, cut out and popped up with 3M foam squares. I think the rest is easy to figure out: ribbon, some bling, and the charm that launched this card.

Thanks for stopping by--make that appointment, y'hear?!
