You Are An Inspiration Card with SRM

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I am so thankful for SRM and It Takes Two Paper. One would think that there would be more out there for breast cancer but I have been looking and am so surprised on how limited the products are. So I was so glad to find these stickers and paper to make this card for someone special in my life that is finishing up her breast cancer treatments.
Cancer in the last few years seems to touch every corner of my life. I have lost both parents to cancer, now watching family and friends either struggle with it or have lost their battles with it. It just saddens my heart. I used Glimmer Mist and cupcake liners for my flowers. I took 4 liners and cut them to measure about 3" in diameter, sprayed them with my Glimmer Mist and the scrunched the up and allowed them to dry. Once dry I open them up carefully and stacked them on top of each other. I held them together with a brad and used one of the SRM Stickers on top of a 5/8" circle as my center of the flower. I placed the center on a pop dot.
I cut my flowers from the Breast Cancer Awareness Cartridge and added them with my SRM stickers to the front of my card. I added some Crystal Stickles and small pearl gemstones to the center of each flower. I added another sticker to the inside of the card with a ribbon that I cut from my Cricut Breast Cancer Awareness Cartridge.

Remember those this month that have won or are fighting not only with breast cancer but with any cancer. Lift them in prayer, wrap them with encouragement and hold them with love.
