More Than Favors Challenge

Wacky Wednesday #8 - Color Challenge

This week for Wacky Wednesday I wanted to do a Color Challenge... The Colors are Pink, Black, Grey & White.

Here is my entry for the color challenge.

My sister-in-law's Mother is in need of a pick me up.  During a Mammogram, she found a lump in her breast.  She's had it removed and will be starting Chemotherapy soon.  This little whale is for her.


This is a Z-fold card (A2 size) and has a pink card stock base. Next, it has a white CS base topped with a pink and white striped vellum (Colorbok) - same treatment for the inside of the card. The whale is cut at 3 1/2" from Create a Critter complete with Grey and pink layers.  The ribbon on the left side is Straight and Narrow ribbon from Michaels. 


The card is topped off with a computer generated sentiment reading "Get Whale Soon" (Sweden font) matted in black.  I added some pink rhinestones to the  sentiment panel and the whale, added Stickles to the whale spray and dotted the eyes with a white gel pen.


This card is also being entered into the Paper Cutz Challenge : Critters
