Wahoo... extra Paper Pumpkin Projects and Cancer Tributes

Wahoo... September My Paper Pumpkin
Monday was a great day in my house... My Paper Pumpkin arrived (and it was a total surprise).  I didn't like this stamp set immediately... then a few ideas came to me.  Here is the first one:
I made this card for a friend who just successfully finished her treatments for Breast Cancer.  I am so happy for her... especially after knowing what it's like to go through chemotherapy (I had cancer in 2002).  I really feel like this large stamp and the smaller "you did it" are perfect to celebrate her achievements!
The "Ribbon of Hope" might be retired in the stamp form but you can still download using MDS!  I made this card into a 5 1/2" square.
 Don't you just love the Strawberry Slush as an in-color?It's perfect for Breast Cancer!  :)  I used the 2013-2015 In-color Designer Series Paper Stack.  I cut three strips to make the background for this card.  As I was finishing, I decided to add the flower (from the Boho Blossoms punch) and the Itty Bitty Butterfly punch!  Adding the bling was the perfect addition to make this card perfect!
I lined the (retired) envelope with the same polka dot DSP from the in-color paper stack.  On the inside of the card I used a stamp from another company (I never do this...) and the Ribbon of Hope stamp (retired but as I said, you can download it from MDS).

Feel free to leave a post about someone who could use a card like this who is going through, or has gone through, cancer.  You can also post a tribute to a loved one who fought their battle with cancer but went onto heaven... 

See you back here tomorrow for two projects: Fab Friday and Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration!  Thanks for following me!
