Remind a Sistah - CASual Fridays Calling All Sistah's!

Thanks for stopping by! It's the 17th of the month - that means that it's time for our "montly" check up! This month's theme is "Remind A Sistah". we want you to remind and encourage one of your Sistah's to do her monthly self breast exam or schedule her yearly mammogram.  If you're following along on the hop you should have reached me from  Rahmat Gouse's blog.  If you want to start from the beginning and get all the details you can find them here at Casual Fridays Stamps!

1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. Early detection is so important for treatment! We want all the women in our lives to know how important they are to us and how much we want them to live strong healthy lives.

CAS-ual Fridays owner Michele is a survivor. She designed a line of stamps to provide support and to promote awareness. Profits from the sale of products in the "Calling All Sistahs" campaign are donated to breast cancer

If you're following along on the hop you should have reached me from the blog. If you'd like to start from the beginning and get all the details you can start here at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.  

I created this card by taking a white card stock panel and cutting an oval in the center to create a frame.  I added Ranger Angel Pink Distress Ink around the oval edges to add color and give it a soft look.  I do like the color pink, and that is the color associated with Breast Cancer Awareness so that's the color I went with.
I stamped images from the Casual Comfort set in different shades of pink around the outside of the frame.  I used pigment inks for a softer look.
I inked up another panel of white card stock with more Ranger Angel Pink Distress Ink, and flicked it with some watered down ink to get some random spots here and there.   When it was dry I stamped the sentiment.

I adhered the frame to the base with adhesive foam tape to add some dimension -  I think it gives it more of the look of a "frame" than if I had left it flat.

Isn't this sentiment encouraging and empowering?! Every time I read it, I am touched. Your stamped and sponged frame is lovely way to showcase the sentiment.
