Pile It On! Challenge - Colourfully Aware

We have a fun new Pile It On! Challenge starting today...and the theme is:

'Colourfully Aware'
(Inspired by the colour of an awareness can find a comprehensive list here)

There's a rather special prize for this challenge...a $30 donation to a charity of the winner's choice!

I picked light blue which represents, among other things, Prostate CancerAddison's Disease and Lymphedema. I didn't really know where this card was headed, but found some light blue papers from my 'Prince Charming' pad by Michaels/Recollections and coloured a Penny Black image ('Cat on the Moon') to ended up looking like a baby boy card, so I added a sentiment (from a set by Lili of the Valley, stamped in 'Nautical Blue' Memento Ink). I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen.

Here are the challenges I've piled on:

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
