Watercolor Pink Ribbon

Happy Monday to you. Kind of gloomy and rainy here today. So I thought I would work on a few encouragement cards. October is breast cancer month and I know we all know of someone who has been affected.  I don't have a ribbon stamp so I thought I might try to paint one. 
I started with a Strathmore watercolor panel and painted the ribbon, let it dry and put some Wink of Stella over it. Super hard to see the sparkle.

The heat embossed the greeting from PTI on vellum and attached it to the watercolor panel. Lastly I matted it to a brushed gold panel then a rose red A2 card base. I will enter it in the following challenges.

The Time Out #93 challenge is for breast cancer awareness.
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
