God Bless You Card

This card will be going out in the mail this week to a very special lady (my nephews' nana) who is undergoing breast cancer treatment right now.  (She's doing well with her treatment but is understandably tired.)  I hope this will be a little sunshine in her mailbox.

My favorite part of the card has got to be Close To My Heart's new silver trim!  Its glittery goodness doesn't seem to shed everywhere, and once you get the clear backing peeled off, it adheres extremely well to your project.  (You are going to be seeing a LOT of this stuff from me! <3 nbsp="nbsp" p="p">
This card pattern is a sketch from the new how-to, Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 1.  (Have I mentioned that this cool guide has scrapbooking sketches and card patterns?  Plus it is only $7.95!)  To coordinate with the La Belle Vie paper pack, I stamped the awareness ribbon (retired) in Blush and then used my new Slate pigment ink to overstamp the sentiment and then swipe the edges of the card and the sentiment panel. 

I need to use this card as a reminder to schedule my very first mammogram.  Am I a big girl now or what?  Have you scheduled yours?
