Live with Passion

Our Badge!!!Welcome to another Words 2 Scrap By challenge--Fight Like a Girl. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month & pink is everywhere--even on the football field!  The perfect chance for me to make my favorite kind of card--girly & elegant.  I never seem to use my tattered rose Distress Ink pad but I will again--a gorgeous shade of pink! Emboss resist is definitely one of my favorite techniques & that's what I did using the Stamplorations Distressed Floral Swirls.
After dry embossing the panel with one of the new 3D We R Memory Keepers folders I sponged a bit more ink on the raised areas & spritzed with Tattered Angels pearl mist. Melissa Phillips "junk bows" are so easy & fun and gave just the right look. The sentiment is from Stamplorations Trendy Butterflies.  I just inked some scraps with the tattered rose, white embossed & mounted them with foam tape. A few years ago I hunted for months to find adhesive pearls to use on cards & finally found one choice--an expensive little pack all one size intended for scrapping wedding pictures.  Guess I was ahead of my time because a year later everybody had pearls in tons of colors & sizes. Well, sequins may be in, but I still love my pearls! Remember to take care of yourself & treasure each day. Thanks so much for coming by. 
I'm entering the Stamplorations Anything Goes Challenge & Pixies Snippets Playground.  Edited to add: Also entering Anything Goes at SSS Wednesday.
