Fight Like a Girl!

Even the title makes me smile! A friend asked me to make a b-day card for a dear friend of hers that has survived breast cancer, I couldn't resist using Flourishes new stamp set "Fight Like a Girl" - how perfect is that?

Of course I started with a sketch, this one from Crazy for Sketches (C4C3). I chose to use the shirt from the stamp set and the small version of the "Fight Like a Girl" stamp. I stamped the shirt twice onto the same DP that was used for the strip on the right-hand side of the card; such pretty DP! The 2nd shirt image is mounted with dimensionals. I used my all-time favorite MS punch - Arch Lattice - punched down both sides of the card stock gives it such a cool look!

I traced the "Fight Like a Girl" on the shirt with a clear Spica glitter pen - so pretty IRL. I also added some Cotton Candy stickles to the collar, sleeves and around the waste. The DP has paisleys in it, so I embossed the base card with the paisley cuttlebug folder and lightly sponged on Chamomile from PTI's Vintage Touch Inking System.

That's about it, pretty straightforward but sure made for a fun b-day card! Thanks for stopping by; it's always great when you visit - thanks for taking the time!! Hugs, ~M.

Love the "Fight like a girl" sentiment for breast cancer! The colors are beautiful, and of course, you have to have pink in it since that is the ribbon color for breast cancer. Great job! Love ya, BFF

This is such a cute stamp set! I love what you have done with the colors! Paper piecing is so much fun...I forget to do that sometimes and it adds just the right zing!
