Calling All Sistahs

Hi! It is October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The CAS-ual Fridays Blog has been turned pink this month and there have been so many projects shown to help spread awareness. 
Today is the 17th and it is time for your monthly reminder to do your self-breast examination and also to schedule your yearly mammogram if you are due for it.
This month has flown by so quickly and my brain has been on overdrive, so I went back to basics for this month's reminder card. I used some of my rarely used patterned paper from my stash.  I chose papers with the same pattern but different colors for my card. I cut the Ruffled Ribbon out of the darker of the two papers and layered 4 layers of white cardstock and one of patterned paper to make the ribbon dimensional. The lighter of the papers I used as a base layer on a black A2 top fold card. I kept the card clean and simple by matching the patterns and using a single black on white sentiment on a base of black and a few sequins from the Sistahood Sparkle sequin mix.


I hope you come on over to the Calling All Sistahs Blog and see what the rest of the team have created this month.
See you tomorrow for this month's Encouragement Challenge.

Great idea to use different shades of the same patterned paper! Thank you for the pretty reminder, Susan, and the no excuses sentiment. :)

CAS 17

Welcome to this month's CAS Encouragement Challenge. 

This month the team used the graphic below to insire our cards and the colors black and white.


Here is my card.
I may have cheated a little bit by using Black Jack ink along with the Midnight on white paper. The image and sentiment are from the Truth Is stamp set. I layered the card main panel onto a layer of black cardstock and then on to a white card base.

Prizes!!  Make an encouragement card using the graphic above as inspiration and link it Here on the Calling All Sistah's Blog and you can win a gift code to the CAS-ual Fridays shop.
