Today's challenge HYCCT1214 -Read All About It - was the perfect challenge for me this day. The front page of our local newspaper was pretty much dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness.
To make my card, I cut pieces from the newspaper and copied them onto cardstock so I could sponge and distress them. I randomly stamped a flourish and a botanical lightly on the background before placing my elements. This went together really quickly, but I like it -

Print articles like you used are a perfect match for my challenge since it was the inspiration for the challenge in the first place. I like the collage effect and how you tied it together with stamping and inks.
Thanks for participating in my HYCCT challenge, I really appreciate the effort and so will many others who will be touched by your gift of cardmaking for this cause.

Fabulous card! I love the overlapping news stories about breast cancer and awareness. You addition of the pink distressing is PERFECT! Your card makes a bold statement and I know will be the perfect card to give someone the nudge they need!
