Fight Like a Girl

I have a very special reason for making this card.  Today my sister begins her first round of chemotherapy treatment to smack down ovarian cancer.  Since I'm not with her in person I decided to make and send her this card of support.  The color ribbon for ovarian cancer is sort of a teal color.  My photos make this look light blue but it actually is teal.

Card Recipe:
Image and sentiment:  Whimsie Doodles titled Hope Fights
Ink: Stampin' Up! So Saffron for sponging and colored with Copic markers
Paper:  K & Company
Tools & Embellishments: My Favorite Things Die-namics die and Nestabilities tag die, Ofray satin and grossgrain ribbons, Prima Flowers, MM brads, Stickles glitter glue in diamond and Glitz teal.

Until next time,


  1. Oh what a fabulous card the image and layout is totally stunning x

  2. Sisters are amazing!! I have two of them and lucky me, one of them is my twin!! I "fought like a girl" too and won just recently to breast cancer!! I was fortunate enough to receive cards of hope and support like this one and read them LOTS when I needed that 'extra boost' to keep strong and stay positive!! You are doing more than you even know by giving her this gift and your sister is a very lucky girl and she will be just fine!! ((hugs))

  3. Beautiful card! I love the colors! I know your sister will love it!

  4. Adorable card. Wishing your sister a winning fight. When you can't be right there, cards are a wonderful way to share your love and support. And your cards are amazing! I know, I have the genuine articles sitting around my house. :). nise

  5. I bet your sister was very touched by your card of support for her, love the colors you have chosen

  6. Beautiful and sweet all in one. Love the paper and your ribbon!
