CAS-ual Fridays BCA (Breast Cancer Awareness) Monthly Reminder




Hi everyone!  As this post goes live, I'll be traveling to Phoenix for Creativation.  I'm so excited.  Not only to see my friends, but to be in a warm climate. 

My post today is for CAS-ual Fridays for their Calling All Sistahs monthly Breast Cancer Awareness Reminder.  Every month, on the 17th, the Encouragement Squad posts cards for you to enjoy and also hopes that you take an opportunity to do a self breast exam.  It would also be great if you reminded your friends and family members to do this as well.

CAS-ual Fridays came out with two new stamps recently which I used for this card.  One is Peace & Comfort and the other is Supercalifragilistic. (shown below)


I did a super simple card using the sentiment as my focal point and the florals as interest.  I simply masked over the sentiment and stamps on both sides of the masking on top and on bottom.  I mounted my main stitched rectangle on a black scalloped rectangle for a peek of black.  I then mounted that on larger sized stitched rectangle dies cut out of white card stock.  I mounted them all together and put it on my card base.  I added a couple of sequins in there for some pop!




I hope you enjoyed my card.  I do this layout with so many of my stamp sets I've collected.  It works with just about any style of stamp you have, especially florals.  I do this when I need a quick and easy card, but don't have a lot of time.

Speaking of not having a lot of time, self breast exams are quick and easy.  You can do it while you shower or when you lay down at night or get up in the morning in bed.  

Thank you for joining us all this month and I hope you join me again tomorrow for the new Encouragement Challenge for January.  Click here for more information on that.
