PS DT Blog Hop(e)

Hey there! Since October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Paper Smooches team and I would like to take this time to tell the women in our lives how very special they are to us.  Please make sure to have a thorough check up every year because we love you dearly.

We would like you to all please visit our design team blogs and say hello. We all created a special card using our PS Hope stamps and Hope dies to show our support. Hop along to see what everyone created!

I wanted to use both the stamps and dies for the Hope set, so I created a chalkboard element with the stamp and then added the die cut cardstock to create dimension. A couple of buttons and a scalloped edge added some other interest to the card. I wanted to keep the color scheme simple and focus on the color pink.


Feel free to visit the National Breast Cancer Society to see how you can make a difference.

Thanks so much for hopping along with us!
