Boobed Again

Hello.  Welcome.  The cue word at CASology is Support.  This card is a style I have made before, you may have seen them around blogland, I haven't made one for a while, I've never blogged this shape card, but it was what sprang to mine with the word support and the fact that this month is breast cancer awareness month.  

I used Sizzix Scallop Heart die to cut my base card.  Then I cut a piece of pearlised paper with a flock pattern using the same die.  I cut the curves to give me the bra shape and added a bit of lace, cos every girl needs pretty support.  I've used a thin strip of the same patterned paper to make my little breast cancer ribbon and added a piece of pink embroidery thread so it looks like a necklace.  Wife of the headless horseman maybe??

I wanted a sentiment, so looked through my Unity sentiments and found a few I thought were suitable.  The one that works best for the Support theme was this one

Sorry, a little glare off the pearlised paper.  The sentiment reads 'on my bad days you are always there to lift me up'  Maybe this would work as a card for a nurse or carer.  But there were a few more as well.....

'thinking of you' 
'I hope you feel beautiful today'
'in your darkest moments let beauty shine through'
'hold on to your truth, your faith, your peace, your you' 

And because we like being thrifty crafters I used the remains of the patterned paper on the backside

This is the backside.  Bwahahahahahaha

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
