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
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.
