Kat Scrappiness & Newton's Nook Breast Cancer Awareness Card Challenge

Hi everyone!  I'm here today to share a great card challenge with you, I hope you'll consider joining us at Kat Scrappiness for our Cancer Awareness Challenge by making and entering a card with an Encouraging/Supportive/Positive message!  That's pretty easy, as cardmakers, we make share lots of that, don't we?! You could win a $20 gift certificate from our sponsor, Newton's Nook Designs!! Check out all their fun new fall releases!

So I started with a 5x5 card base.  I stamped the Newton kitty image holding the awareness ribbon smack in the middle of my stitched square.  I stamped him again on a full sticky post-it note and cut the image out to use as my mask.  I then stamped him twice on each side to create a whole support team of Newton's! I decided to alternate dark and light grey kittens so they'd really stand out.  

Here's what I used to make this card:
