July IHP DT Challenge: Charity Logo Inspiration

For this month’s IHP Design Team Challenge, we were asked to use the logo of a favorite charity as inspiration for our card or project. I doubt there’s anyone reading this whose lives have not been touched in some way by breast cancer, and my family is no exception. I used the logo of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® as inspiration for this cute little phone message pad.

july11-IHPDTC I love their whimsical use of the ribbon image to represent a person running, since the fundraiser they’re SusanGKomenLogo452famous for is the Mother’s Day Race for the Cure. I used the whimsical-looking telephone from the Just My Type stamp set by Lawn Fawn, stamping it in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloring it with Copic markers for the main image, and stamping it repeatedly in light pink as a background as well as on the bottom corner of each page of the note pad. I used a piece of yummy Light Fuschia Faux Suede ribbon around the bottom of the top panel to visually balance it and give it a little texture. It’s all mounted on a layer of light pink over a base cover of PTI Raspberry Fizz cardstock.

If you’d like to know more about Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, simply click on the logo above. If you’d like to show us how a favorite charity logo has inspired you, we’d love to see your work. Just post it to the SCS or PCP gallery using the keyword ihp0711 so we can find it.

Now go check out what Kate and the rest of the IHP Design Team did with this challenge:
