CASual Awareness

It's Friday so time for a new challenge over at CASual Friday's and this week I can join in - I skipped last weeks be inspired by your blog header as mine is just too complex to make a CAS card from.  This week it's simply to make a card for a girl but with the added theme of Breast Cancer Awareness as it's awareness in October
My card today is a CASE as I was completely inspired by Debbie's technique of white embossing onto white card and colouring today on this card from the new stamps from clearly besotted.  I decided to try the technique and this is my first attempt:

I used the colour combo from this weeks' ColourQ as it matches the awareness theme.  Simply stamped the skipping stones bra set directly onto cardstock and embossed in white then coloured in with pink pencils and gave a shadow with a grey pencil all blended with sansoder.  The sentiment is from the same set stamped in black.  Finished with a tiny pink button and white cotton thread bow.

Hope everyone is ready for World Card Making Day tomorrow - I plan to play as much as possible!  It would be rude not too frankly ;-)
