Ribbon of Courage

This month is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I thought I should make a card to remind you to schedule your Mammogram! Do it first thing Monday morning, promise me... this is important. Early detection is the key!

Now that I've rattled you guys, I am ready to show you the card. I was inspired by Mary Fish... she posted some cards with a border that has a "break" just big enough for part of a greeting. Very cool. I didn't want to use a sentiment with several lines because I was using the ribbon stamp so I just used one word...

The ribbon I've used is the 1/2 inch Gingham ribbon in Smoky Slate. And while it would have worked with this card "as is", I wanted to prove the point that even this ribbon can be custom dyed ;-) Yep, I simply let it sit in a mixture of rubbing alcohol and Pink Pirouette ink refill.. for about 5-10 minutes, and then dried it off... pretty neat...

And I did some more coloring with my blendies in anticipation of the new "blends" to arrive... fun!
