Saturday Color Challenge 10/27& Hybrid ATC: PINK Heroes
I hope my fellow Hybrid ATC'ers forgive me for posting this early, but I really wanted to get it in on our "Pink" day. Our October Hybrid theme was "Seasons" and I was trying to think of something other than the usual natural four. These cards are what resulted. The following journaling was included with my card:
"While looking for a different slant on the usual four 'seasons', I realized that October is "National Breast Cancer Awareness Month". I thought about how not very long ago a breast cancer diagnosis was close to a death sentence. Yet now -- after years of research and learning -- so much advancement has been made in treating it. It popped into my mind that October is truly a "Season of Hope" these days.
The tiny pink ribbon attached to your ATC was crocheted by my 89-year-old aunt who is a two-time breast cancer survivor and still going strong. I made this card in honor of all the brave women who have battled this disease - both those who courageously survived and those who helped get us to where we are now, but were diagnosed in a time when it was not as treatable. You are all heroes..."
For the hybrid part of my card: I added an iridescent shine to the heart and pink glitter to the word "HOPE". I tied the crocheted ribbon to the punched hole on top and glued a pink ribbon ribbon down the left side of the card.
