CFC 60 - using text!

This weeks CASual Friday challenge was to include text in your Clean and Simple project.

cfc60

I had already made (but not yet gifted) this framed sentiment for one of my oldest and dearest friends diagnosed with breast cancer early this year.

My inspiration was a graduation card found in the insert from the last great issue of Scrapbooks, Etc. (Let's all have a moment of silence.) I'm sorry I don't have a photo of the inspiring piece.

My chipboard / grungeboard letters are covered with patterned CTMH paper which is all texty and in Blush pink -- a great combination.


I stamped in Cotton Candy ink above and below the main sentiment of the piece: "I believe in Miracles" using my Skipping Stones Design stamp set, Cancer Schmancer. The butterflies were cut out of CTMH cardstock using my Art Philosophy cartridge and centered with a small gem adhesive from Michaels.

Pay no attention to the busy frame! I bought it because it matched her den, but it's too much with this piece and I'm going to paint it. (and by I, I mean my hubby). Probably in a solid gray that will still match her decor.

Thanks for looking and have a great week!
