I’m participating today in a Blog Hop for Autism Awareness.  Our challenge is to create a card using the Autism colors of Red, Blue and Yellow.  Every person participating in this blog hop will be sharing with you a project as well as a fact about Autism.  And if you are able please donate to the “Stamped with Love Team” to raise money for the Autism Speaks organization.  Autism Speaks is an autism advocacy organization in the United States that sponsors autism research and conducts awareness and outreach activities aimed at families, governments, and the public.

You can donate at the link here.

Autism Fact: As early as infancy, a baby can begin to show the three hallmark features of autism: communication challenges, impaired social interactions, and repetitive behavior.

Now on to my project.  I used a brand new stamp set that will be coming out in the 2017-2018 Annual catalog that starts on June 1st.  It is called Ribbon of Courage.

I stamped the floral ribbon in Basic Black ink and then colored it in with my Stampin’ Write Markers.  I used Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Marina Mist.

The back ground is made from the Stitched Shapes Framelits – I cut squares in each of the colors and cut them to fit together and create the background on my card.

The words are from the Me = Grateful stamp set which is on the retiring list.
