Offset scallop challenge

So this card is for the Offset Scallop Gallop Challenge in the Moxie Fab World - there are a ton of entrants and there are some super cute ones (unfortunately I haven't made it thru all the competition yet...LOL) For my scallops I went outside the box and used my cuttlebug ribbon die to simulate scallops - hope thats what they were looking for. When the idea for the card came to me I didn't know that October was breast cancer awareness month, so that was a nice twist to this.

I created this card for my dear dear friend Kristy. For our 40th birthday, we and some other friends and family took a trip to Vegas and had just a great great time. Shortly after our return she found out she had breast cancer.... so we have been thru the chemo, radiation, the hair loss and now she has just gone thru her second reconstructive surgery. So this card is a welcome home from the hospital pick me up.

World Card Making Day 10.02.10

On Facebook, OWH threw down one last challenge for the WCMD - make a card with your most treasured/hoarded Christmas embellishment.

Since most of my stuff is still in storage I went with something that I LOVE, so therefore bought a lot of . . .these darling Heidi Grace cardstock holly stickers. I am a big fan of anything Heidi as well as holly - to me a timeless symbol of Christmas.
