Color Cue {9}

Thursday, October 14, 2010

I'm here, today, with a little, Wplus9, Color Cue {9} inspiration for you all.
Dawn picked these colors to honor October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
I started this card by stamping a damask design, in Pretty in Pink and Positively Pink inks, across the bottom of a piece of white cardstock; hand cutting, around its bottom edge, to create a scalloped edge...
machine stitching a light-pink-threaded, straight-stitch, double frame around its top half...
framing it with a piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock; and wrapping a length of Raven, lace trim, just above the stamped edge, before adhering it to the Basic Black, cardstock, card face.  I, then, stamped the damask frame, in Pretty in Pink and Positively Pink inks, on a piece of white cardstock; stamped the "I'm here for you today and always" sentiment, in Basic Black ink, in its center; hand cut it out; framed it with a piece of hand-cut, Basic Black cardstock; gave it, along with the rest of the card face, a healthy coating of Tea Dye and Antique Linen, distress inks; glittered it; and adhered it, with dimensionals, just above vertical center, in the horizontal center of the card face.
A few, clear gemstones; a length of seam binding ribbon, stained with Pink Bubblegum Glimmer Mist, wrapped around the card face, and tied, in a fancy bow, to the bottom left of the framed sentiment...
and a black-studded, clear button, laced with a white, string bow, complete the look.
Now, off you go to get inking!  You have until November 7th, at 10:59 pm EST, to play along.  I cannot wait to see what you all come up with!  Thanks so much for looking in on me!  Don't forget to run check out all the other design team members' Color Cue {9} beauties, and have a fantastic weekend!
