World Autism Day--Red Instead!

Today is World Autism Day and that is something we recognize in this house.  It is something, however, we wear red.  We recognize autism awareness month with #redinstead.  To learn more about that, google #redinstead.

After using the red background, I used the Brush Stroke Alphabet and the Stamparatus to create the saying Temple Grandin's mother, Eustacia Cutler, use to say to her, "Different not Less."  Autism is about neurodiversity and being different, not less than.  I also created the rainbow infinity symbol by cutting out two ribbons with the Big Shot using Support Ribbon thinlits.  I then adhered them together, trimmed them, and watercolored the rainbow color using my Aquapainter.

I was inspired by the sketch  from FMS320.  Please head to Freshly Made Sketches to see the design inspiration and other creative entries.

  1. What a great card! I love that ribbon and such a beautiful sentiment! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

    1. Thanks. I love how the infinity ribbon turned out so well when you turn two support ribbons on their side.

  2. A brilliant sentiment and the multicoloured ribbon looks wonderful against the red! Thanks for playing along at FMS this week!
