Flat Ribbon For Stamp Simply #58

Make it flat...that's what Sharon said to do for her Stamp Simply challenge. No bumps or bulges for this one so it can be mailed flat in an envelope, with no extra postage. I had started this card for my good friend in Miami who has finished her chemo after a recurrence of her breast cancer. She was here this past weekend to visit her daughter and she looks fabulous. Her hair is growing back in and she has it kind of spiky right now which is so totally not her, but it looked great on her! I found the template here, printed it directly onto the pink CS and cut it out. I wanted to use the Survivor mantra that is so fitting for anyone who has dealt with breast cancer (or any cancer for that matter). I got out several of my JustRite sets to get the letters on here. Used the Special Occasions font from one monogram set for the larger letters. I used the small font set to do phrases from the whole sentiment as a background across different parts of the ribbon. Don't sneeze while working with these itsy bitsy letters...found myself on the floor under my desk looking for some of them. :) I chalked the edges of the card, added some pink Stickles. Still needed something, so I glued on the pink and fuschia "foily" butterflies and added the Stickles to their bods as well. Not a whole lot to do with something this shape, but I really liked how it turned out.

Stamps: JustRite Special Occasions and Small Letters sets.
Paper: The Paper Studio CS.
Ink: Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Template, Stickles, chalks, butterflies
