A breast Cancer Card

Well, gals, let me start off by saying I'm sorry I haven't check in all week.  Disney was wonderful and we were able to squeeze in a day at the beach while we were in Flordia.  The weather was perfect for us last weekend.  I had high hopes that I would be doing a lot of crafting this week as it is my last week off from school.  Unfortunately, I picked up a case of strep throat while in FL and I have been really sick thsi week.  I am starting to feel a bit better, but I am still running a fever and not up for crafting yet.

So, I have been meaning to share this card with you.  I made it before Christmas for a friend who has had a very long and difficult year.  I have been sending cards to her on a regular basis this year and I wanted to make her end of the year card special.  To create the card I used the Cricut Cartrige Forever young and used my Gypsy to weld two of the bra shapes together.  I also added a rectangle from George and Basic Shapes to fill in the center.  The white layer was cut using glitter cardstock...then a pink layer...then the top layer I cut then covered in tulle.  I added a pretty sheer ribbon to the bra.  For the "necklace" I used a bit of chain that I had in my stash and the pink ribbon is a portion of a pink paperclip that I trimmed and twisted to get the shape I needed. 

I hope you like it!  I hope to be back on my feet soon and hopefully, I will be crafting again this weekend.
