Spend today in our challenge forum, where you can celebrate the power of a handmade card with our community, and just maybe get a surprise or two!

To kick it off, Lydia, Lori and I will host a challenge today. But the campaign will go on all month long!  Mine is:

Thinking of Breast Cancer awareness – you can’t help but think about….boobies!! Now that might make you think about all the cute lingerie out there designed to show them off.

So my challenge is to get inspired by lingerie. Think lacy, think pattern, think satin and bows – have some girly fun with it!

For my card I started with an image from the Girlfriend Creative Scrap from Crafty Secrets. I layered it on a slightly bigger piece of Natural White Neenah cardstock. The next layer is a piece of Early Espresso cardstock cut and embossed with the Scallop Frame Spellbinder die.

A 4 3/8″ x 5 3/4″ piece of Webster Pages patterned paper was stitched to a 3/8″ bigger piece of Natural White cardstock.  Two smaller pieces of Webster Pages paper adhered together, lace was adhered over the smaller one and the pieces were stitched together. These smaller layers were adhered to the bigger one.

The card base measures 4 3/4″ x 6 1/8″ out of Early Espresso. To create that size, I cut one piece 4 3/4″ x 6 1/8″, another piece 4 3/4″ x 7″. The longer piece was scored at 6 1/8″ and the smaller piece was adhered to the scored tab.

To dress it up I created a lace flower out of Websters Pages ribbon and topped it with a Webster Pages Scalloped Sparklers. The sentiment is also from the Girlfriends Creative Scraps. I adhered it next to the lace flower. More rhinestones were added.

For the inside of the card I used another piece of the Girlfriend Creative Scraps, along with Websters Pages paper and scalloped sparkler.

I hope you have time to play along! Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs and smiles
