Splitcoast is having some ongoing challenges for the month of October featuring cancer awareness. I wanted to participate in the Pink Critter challenge, and when the Get Your Diva challenge of making your own embellishments was announced I had a brainstorm... which can be good or bad depending on how the card turns out! : ) I remembered some yellow flannel that I had used in a quilt for my daughter and niece years ago and figured that I still had some left somewhere. I was right! I made a little blanket out of one of the patterns - using pinking shears and a little stitching and then made a moon from another pattern. I watercolored Emery, the elephant, with Tombow markers, after stamping him on some heavy watercolor paper, and then I added a "Hope Ribbon" blanket tied with some embroidery floss. The sentiment is from Verve's Many Blessings and is cut out with the Oval Label dies. I added stars with my Stardust Glitter Pen and hills that I stitched on my sewing machine and embossed. And that's about it!
Here's the completed card...
Thanks for stopping by today!
