Yesterday's card was teal in support of Ovarian Cancer, today's however is Orange - which is the colour for Leukemia. (If you want to know more about ribbon colours for various cancer types, please scroll down to yesterday's post.) I have a friend with Leukemia and there is no cure, only constant checking, tests and trying to stay in remission. She doesn't tell people as she doesn't want to be defined by her disease - but let me tell you, she is one of the most amazing, strong, positive, incredible people I know and I feel privileged to be her friend! I chose the 'Strength' sentiment especially for her!
My base is created of aqua bazzill, black and pumpkin pie topped with two pieces of MME Mabel DP. Across this is a punched piece of pumpkin and topped with white crochet lace and white satin ribbon. The decorative frame from Be Strong is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut out with Labels 10 Nestabilities. This is matted with more Mabel DP cut with Labels 17 Nestabilities and I've hand cut a black frame for it. The ribbon from Be Strong is stamped with Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with the Orange Quad Copic Marker set (YR00, YR12, YR16, YR18), cut out with scissors and popped up on foam tape. Next I've added a white bow to the ribbon, topped it with a pale orange button and gold cord. The sentiment has been stamped in Tuxedo Black and cut out with JustRite's Nested Frame Dies and popped under the ribbon. To finish I've added a few black pearls to the corners.
