Because the Hope You Can Cling To challenges at Splitcoaststampers are benefiting breast cancer patients at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, many of the challenge themes are related to things associated with breasts and cancer.  One challenge presented earlier this week was titled “Save the Boo-Bees” .  Using a pun on that nickname for breasts, we were challenged to make a card with bees on it.  I took it as the perfect opportunity to finally use this cute tree image I’ve had for a while.  After I stamped the tree, I masked it and sponged the sky and grass around it, and then colored the image with Copics.  I used the mirror image of the October Sketch For You to Try layout for my card and kept it simple and straightforward with no poofy, lumpy embellishments.

Here’s the original sketch:

Stamps: Lucky You (Lizzie Anne Designs); Sanded (Stampin’ Up)
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Close to Cocoa, So Saffron (SU); Pure Luxury White (Gina K. Designs)
Ink: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery (SU); Onyx Black (VersaFine)
Other: markers (Copic); twill ribbon (SU); sponges

  1. Cuuuute! You know I love anything by LAD… but the colors and layout you chose are great! I may have to make a card like this now. :)
