Breast Cancer Encouragement Card + Turkey Freebie

This week I decided to make a card for my son's preschool teacher. She was just diagnosed this past week with breast cancer. I just wanted to cheer her up a bit. So I used Lindsay's new set of bold black & white digital papers. I opened the paper that I wanted in my publisher program. I right-clicked on the paper and chose format picture/object. Then I clicked on the "recolor" button. Then I just chose a sassy color of pink! I am in love with this zebra print. It isn't your typical print. It is very artistic looking!

I also used Linday's breast cancer awareness digi stamp. It is an old freebie, but you can still get it here. I used my paint.net program to add the zebra print to the bra as well. You can see my tutorial for doing this here. I just added a couple of doodle flourishes behind the image and a bit of ribbon and inking to the edges.


I found this quote on google and put it inside. This card qualifies for the following challenges: Aly's Stampin' Challenge (distressing), City Crafter (get your digi on), Color Cue 9 (Pink, white, grey, black), Cow Girl Sunday (bling it on), Craft your Passion (Anything goes), Crafty Card Makers (use digi in unusual way), Incy Wincy (Anything goes), Inktegrity (Anything goes), Lexi's Creations (Anything Goes), My Sheri (Get well), Paper Players (anything goes), Stamp Something (pink), Wee Memories, (free 4 all)

I also wanted to show you Lindsay's two new sets! You can read more about them here.  She's been a busy gal!


Now don't forget to stop by Lindsay's blog for a freebie!

Time for your Thursday freebie! Per request, here is a Turkey! The SVG file is below. To save the digi stamp, click on the image to get the larger file, then right-click to save.
