Hello!  I'm sharing another card, that I made for SCS HYCCT challenges; this one is for the "Many Colors of Cancer" challenge.  I chose black, which stands for melanoma.  For my card, I am using Doodle Pantry's Special Ribbons set; it has colored ribbons to represent the different kinds of cancer, matching DPs, and sentiments.  The sketch is from last week's Just Add Ink challenge.

I printed the word "Faith" on my background panel, rounded the corners and adhered it to a black card base.  The ribbon DP was matted and popped up with dimensionals to frame the word.  For embellishing, I've added a button and Swarovski flatback crystal.  The inside is lined with a white panel with the sentiment "It's not what we say that matters, It's what we DO!"

Sentiment: Doodle Pantry "Special Ribbons" Set
Ink: Printer
Paper: G.P. 110, PTI True Black, Doodle Pantry "Special Ribbons" DP
Embellies: PTI Button, Swarovski Flatback Crystal in "Black Diamond"
Extras: Corner Chomper, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos
My Mother was diagnosed with melanoma last spring; thankfully she is doing well as it was caught early.  It was such a surprise as she has not been one to be in the sun a lot; she noticed a "freckle" that didn't look quite right.  When the biopsy came back as melanoma, she underwent a wide excision biopsy.  Even though I'm a nurse, this was not something I was familiar with.  I was shocked at how big her incision was!  She now has to have full body screenings every 3 months; they also recommend her siblings and children be screened too.  This is a deadly form of cancer!  Please be proactive; wear sunscreen and examine your skin for changes.

Doodle Pantry is having a Wild West Sale through October 27; all western themed products are 30% off!  You can check out some awesome cards from the DT and the sale details here.

Love this Angela. I did not know the different kinds of cancer had different colors so you taught me something. Thanks for sharing the card and the info.
