Card for Bekah - Spina Bifida Awareness Month

The past few years, I've been amazed at how many pink products companies roll out in October as part of Breast Cancer Awareness month - but did you know that October is also Spina Bifida Awareness month? One of my bloggy friends, Giovana, is marking the occasion with a card drive for a sweet little girl. You can read all about it here.

I really wanted to make her a card, and I still had all the stuff from the past couple projects sitting on my workspace, so... I started out with the Mojo Monday sketch (and ended up taking some liberties with it! :) I wanted to use another adorable layered flower with a button (Making Memories), but couldn't help thinking that it was sort of a shame to just "waste" it as a card embellishment - but wait, I know I have some barrettes in my stash! I added a bit of tulle behind the flower to give it just a bit more substance, then stitched it all onto the base. Cute, cute, cute if I do say so myself! I attached it to the card with a couple glue dots so it can easily be removed. The sentiment is from Daisy Bucket Designs (#5151) and the printed papers are all Memory Box Sprout. And on that note, I really think it's time to put those papers away and move onto some other colors!!
