Diabetes Awareness Month - DT Challenge

November is Diabetes Awareness month. We were challenged by one of the DT girls, Cassie to make a card to support Diabetes. The awareness ribbon color for diabetes is gray to represent the drudgery of dealing with diabetes every day. A red dot is often shown on the ribbon to represent the multiple times a day that a diabetic must check their blood. If you'd like to learn more about Diabetes click on the Diabetes Ribbon. The challenge is to make a card using the colors gray and red . If you would like to join in on the challenge you can go over and post a link to your card in a comment at Pink Papery Studio's so everyone can see it! We would all love to see what you come up with.

Here's my first card using a digital background paper created by Jami. I wanted more flowers in the paper so I ended up cutting out a couple and adding them on top of the printed paper. That way I was able to create my own pattern.

Stamps: All Year Cheer I
Paper: Real Red, Basic Gray, White
Ink: Black, Basic Gray
Accessories: 5/8 inch Red Ribbon, Gemstones, Paper Piercer

Here's my second card using the same materials minus the stamp set. This time I used Stampin Up's Sage Advice set.

Stamps: Sage Advice
Paper: Real Red, Basic Gray, White
Ink: Black, Basic Gray, Real Red
Accessories: 5/8 inch Red Ribbon, Dimensionals, Button, Silver Cord

I might just do this! My mom has dealt with diabetes since I was 16- 20 years now. My nephew was diagnosed when he was only 5 (now 18). This is a terrible disease to deal with, and I've never seen the awareness ribbon for it. Thanks for showing this on your blog!
