Think Pink

Here is the first of my Pink October cards. I'll be submitting this one to the My Sheri Crafts challenge.  It's so wonderful that an entire month is dedicated to Breast Cancer awareness, but we must not forget to support those who are fighting the other types of devastating cancers as well.  My sister-in-law is fighting ovarian cancer and her husband has multiple myeloma.  Both of my parents died of cancer, so fighting this awful illness is near and dear to my heart. 

This is the screen shot of my Gypsy.  Sheila (aka She's a Sassy Lady) provides wonderful directions for making window cards and suggests we use a window frame from Fabulous Finds. (You can weld words or images to any frame, but not the inside of a solid shape). I wanted to weld "Hope" to the window and then place another one on top for dimension.  I also welded the window's shadow cut, sized the same as the window, so that the card, when folded, would be an A2.  The welded letters for "Hope" are from Songbird.  The butterfly is from Sentimentals.

Here's what the welded window cut looks like before folded or embellished.

I added paper to the iside as a base for the butterfly which shows through the window frame.  The butterfly trail was made using a 3-D Glaze pen which adds gloss and a little dimension.

I used foam squares to pop the butterfly and added tiny pearls to the antenae.

I adhered "Hope" to the window cut and added an EK Success border trimmed to fit the card width. The ribbon and pearls finished the card.

Check back during this month for more Think Pink ideas.
Hugs and Happy Crafting,

BEAUTIFUL card! I just love the detail on the butterfly and the window in the card.

You can also email your pic and mail your card to the Scrapbooking Queen. Her blog is

She is collecting cards for a woman's center where they are distributing cards to some women that are fighting this terrible disease. She is also doing giveaways for those that enter their cards :)
