Tuesday Morning Sketches #64

Good Morning!  I hope you're week is off to a great start.  I have a really fun sketch to share with over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I do hope that you'll join us this week.  We're being sponsored by Bee Crafty and I know that you've seen her adorable digi images around and here on my blog.  I also added the twist to THINK PINK - October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

This card was little tricky for me to do all that I wanted to do with it, but I managed.  It's definitely full of pink and hearts but I just wanted to convey the love that I have for my sister who is celebrating her 3rd year of being cancer free. 

I did alter the image from Bee Crafty just a little.  The sweet little lady actually has a birthday hat on, so I removed that in my photo editing software and then drew a line to finish her head as best I could.  I also found an Awareness Ribbon somewhere on the internet (I should've written it down to give proper credit) that was in .gif format so it's transparent and "laid over top" the balloon nicely.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette (SU)
Paper:  Unknown (it's been in my stash for a long time!)
Images:  Little Lady Birthday (Bee Crafty), Awareness Ribbon (internet)
Copics:  B000, E00, E02, E34, E37, RV000, RV02, RV10, RV13, YR20
Tools:  Scor-Pal, Heart border punch (Martha Stewart), Glossy Glaze, corner rounder punch
Embellishments:  heart brads (my stash)

I would also like to challenge you, whether or not you play along with us, that you create a card and send it to a special woman in your life that may be affected by this horrible disease to encourage her through her battle or perhaps to someone to encourage them to do their self-exams and have their yearly check-ups. Early detection is key.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I do hope you join us this week.  Remember to Think Pink and Fight Like a Girl!!

Oh Mel this is so cute! Great altering, the ribbon on the balloon is a wonderful idea. I know how much her news scared you, and I praise God that she's doing soooo well now!! Happy day to you~
