Bloggers Challenge- Use Cardboard


Bloggers Challenge Mom LISA has challenged us this week to use cardboard on our projects. 
I have been attempting to make Breast Cancer Awareness cards, so decided to put the challenge into action using a digi from McMahon Five Designs. (Where there is a monthly freebie for BCA- gallery HERE).

 I printed two of the images- cut out the ribbons from the first image and glued them to cardboard:
  I cut out the cardboard once the glue was dry, then colored with Copic markers and added sparkle with Sakura Gelly Roll pen. The ribbon matches so much better IRL. The background is wax paper resist.

 I hope you will join in the challenge- add your card to Mr Linky and come hop and meet the other gals that are playing along!

**Add your card to Mr Linky to join in!

Really nice - the waxed paper background looks amazing with this card, and leveling up the ribbons really adds some dimension!

Especially like the use of the Breast Cancer Ribbon symbol as the 'L' on the Breast Cancer Awareness card.
