The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Here at Jens Digi Stamps we want to recognize the 2.5 million women who survived breast cancer,  Honor those that are standing up right now and Fighting Like a Girl we support you !

Please take the time to get a mammogram....

About 1 in 8 women in the United States (12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.

The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are gender (being a woman) and age (growing older).

These statistics came from www.breastcancer.org

We were given a digital stamp image from Jen's Digi Stamps to use in our project.   So,  I created two 8x10 photo boards and then put them in a clear plastic box frame.  I also made a card.

Used Paint Dabber on edges of Foam Board, Paper Box to hold Board in Frame, and around each of the papers

Used Fiskars Border Punch on the White Shiny Paper(on the picture piece, I did all sides, but on the image piece, I only did the sides)

I used a glaze pen on the sign wording, then added some pink and white rhinestones.  Then, after coloring the image with Copic and Tomboy markers, I used stickles to accent the image.
