'Pinktober' with Dragonflies.

Time for another challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies. As it's Breast Cancer awareness month and this charity is close to Hilde's heart we are challenging you to create a card that depicts the Hope, Faith and Courage of the thousands of brave Cancer sufferers and survivors.

This is my inspiration for you.

I began with a square card using white card stock. I covered the background in a deep pink paper that was in my snippets box.  Then a paler piece of pink was embossed and placed across the centre. Now the fun started when I began to create the background for the image.

  I went to my snippets folder again and found co ordinating pink papers. Then  I cut them into triangles all the same size. This was done by firstly cutting oblong pieces the same size and then cutting them diagonally. Therefore each triangle was then equal. I took a square piece of card stock and starting at the centre I placed the pink triangles on to this. The triangles do overlapped at the sides and when completed you trim the edges. This makes a 'sunburst' effect.

I then placed it on the prepared card and added a pink gem where the 'points' of the triangles met. I googled images for Cancer awareness and found the one I'm using on the card. This was trimmed and matted with pale pink. Finally I added the pink ribbon bow and another pink gem.

A really fun background to create. I hope you give it a go and support our challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies. (link in sidebar) will atke you to more inspiration from the team!

Have fun!!
