Calling All Sistahs!

Hello everyone!! It is the 17th of March and that means another CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Calling All Sistahs" Blog hop!! You should have come here from Mary's blog.


This blog hop is to encourage women to remember to get their yearly mammograms. One in eight women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer. Early detection is so important for treatment. Make sure to make appointment to get the girls SQUEEZED!

The owner of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, Michele, is a Breast Cancer survivor herself. She developed a line of stamps to promote Breast Cancer awareness. Fifty Percent of the proceeds of the "Calling All Sistah's" product line will be donated to causes that promote Breast Cancer awareness, as well as research for a cure.

Along the way their will be prizes!! Three Random commenters will be picked from the comments on the hop to receive a prize but you must comment by March 19, 2017 to be eligible.

Now that the particulars are done, lets get on with the details about the card I created for the hop!!

I chose to create a simple card and used two CAS-ual Fridays Stamps sets on my card-"Be" and "Word Ribbon."



I started off by stamping a white A2 card base with two sizes of butterflies from the "Be" stamp set using three types of pink dye ink. To be honest, this was the second card base I stamped for this card due to the dropping of a stamp. Hate when that happens!!


I then used a sentiment from "Word Ribbon" and stamped it over the butterflies in black dye ink. I layered a scalloped die cut panel in white wrapped with metallic floss over the pink, using foam adhesive to give it a bit of dimension.


I finished the card off with a few sequins from the "Sistahood Sparkle," an exclusive mix of sequins made for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps by Pretty Pink Posh.

The next blog on this hop is Ceal's blog. If you get lost along the way, the complete blog list for the hop is at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

Ooh, Nora, I love the contrast of the stark white on the left and pops of color on the right. It remains feminine with the flowing design throughout. Thank you for being a part of our Calling All Sistahs blog hop!
