Breast Cancer Awareness Blog Hop October 1st, 2011

Hello everyone and welcome to the Breast Cancer Awareness Blog Hop!  
We want to spread the news about this deadly disease that could be cured if it is diagnosed in time.
I know that each and everyone of us has been touched by someone with cancer or has had it themselves.  Please invite your family and friends to participate in the hop with us.  Losing a family member, friend or even out pets is very difficult.  I hope you all HOP through this journey with us.

Faith ~ Hope ~  Pray ~ Believe
For this card I started with a 12 x 12 piece of white card stock cut in half to make this 6 x 6 card.
Then used Breast Cancer Ribbon paper from from Me and My Big Ideas.

Then I used the Spellbinders Large Labels to cut the shapes that fit the Pray for a Cure Rectangle stamp set ( I designed this set for the Large Labels Nestibilitie Dies) that is in the Ink Pink Collection by A Jillian Vance Design  found HERE

Charming Jilly Charm and Pear Pin with seed beads

I used Jet Black Archival Ink for the word frame and also the swirly frame around the word Believe.  I stamped "Believe" in Magenta Hue Archival Ink.

Then I used a wire edge white satin ribbon to tie around the base layer and added A Jillian Vance Design Pear Pin with the Hope Ribbon Charming Jilly Charm to complete my card.
