Breast Cancer Awareness

I'm sure you all know that October is a Breast Cancer Awareness month. Therefore we have a suitable challenge for you at PMS Digi Makeover Challenge: Think Pink - Breast Cancer Awareness.
Paper Makeup Stamps decided to put out a stamp set in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. A portion of all sales from this set will go to the Susan G Komen Foundation for breast cancer research. This digi set includes 4 word arts and 2 fabulous images. You can purchase this set here.

I wanted to try something new and made a shaped twisted easel card.I used Madelyn, The Praying Fairy digi stamp on my card. She is colored with Promarkers. Then I thought about sentiment, I really loved one from new Breast Cancer Awareness digi set "We don't know how strong we are, until being strong is the only choice we have" but I needed it in Estonian. So I made it myself.

Because the message of the card is very powerful, I kept the card design quite simple - just few pretty papers, some pearls and flower and lots of stickles. I placed foam tape under fairy wings so they wouldn' be flat. This is first time I made semi-faux stitching: I poked the holes and draw stitching lines with white gel pen. It looks quite real.

Materials used:
Stamps: Paper Makeup Store - 
Madelyn, The Praying Fairy
Papers: KaiserKraft - Miss Nelly; White paper and sparkling lilac paper from my stash,
Ink: Memento - Angel Pink; Printer

Coloring: Promarkers
Dies:Spellbinders Nestabilites - Standard Circles Larges  and Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Punch: Heyda - Small leaf
Sentiment: Computer generated

Embellishments: Ranger Stickles - Crystal, Queen & Co - white pearls (colored with Promarker - Cerice, added some stickles on top); Flower is gift from My Crafty Heart (added some pink with Promarker - Cerice and stickles on top); MeiFlower - White satin ribbon (one piece is colored with Promarker - Blossom)
