That's right! I have "Something to Say" stamp set is a wonderful, versatile stamp set that has landed several times in many of my creations. Pair it with Daydream Medallions and we have an assistant to some fun creating while helping a friend battle against cancer. This is card #2 from my Stamp Out Breast Cancer stamp class and was inspired by a fellow demonstrator and friend, Selene Kempton. Her colors were more in the season of the Christmas holidays, and I have troubles totally CASEing anyone else's creations, so I changed the colors to reflect symbolism to Breast Cancer awareness with a touch of Pink.
This card is so soothing and warm using the colors of Soft Sky, Melon Mambo, and Smoky Slate and the variety of Daydream Medallion images stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then matted onto a layer of Blackberry Bliss. I just love the softness of the Smoky Slate cardstock base...really brings a richness to the meaning of the sentiments. I'm sorry for the poor lighting as it makes the Blackberry Bliss inked sentiments, scallop circle and 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon banner tails appear black in nature versus the true deep, rich purple. I just could not get the true color to come through. But, you gotta love the sparkle, right?!! The sentiments are popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals to add a little depth and character. I have a couple of friends that are fighting the fight of Breast Cancer and Pancreatic Cancer that will be receiving some love from me.
Yesterday was a birthday milestone for me, which was celebrated quietly with my family. My sweet hubby treated us to a night out of Brazilian food (Rodizio's) and Reese's Blizzard cake from DQ. YUMMY! And, my wonderful daughters bought me a beeee-u-tiful bouquet of flowers garnished with a balloon decorated with lots of candles....didn't count them, but there were LOTS! ;)
