Strength and Hope

I finally got a chance today to ink up one of the new sets I got recently, Strength and Hope! I love love love this set. Like many others my life has been touched by cancer, especially in the last few yrs. My stepmom is a breast cancer survivor(she recently hit her 5 yr clear mark, woohooo!), 3 yrs ago my best friend since I was 15 lost her mom to breast cancer(passing away only 3 months after she was diagnosed), and I lost my beloved father to squamous cell cancer on Oct.2,2010.

I've seen the Strength and Hope of cancer survivors and their loved ones up close and personal and this set just really speaks to me. Plus any money that goes towards breast cancer research is a wonderful thing! So I got inking today and made a card that incorporated 2 challenges, this weeks colors from The Color Throwdown, and this weeks sketch from Clean and Simple.

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Strength and Hope
Paper: So Saffron, Rose Red, Whisper White, Springtime Vintage DSP
Ink: Rose Red, Taken With Teal
Accessories: Round Corner Punch, Rose Red Brads, Whisper White Ribbon, CB Swiss Dots folder, sponge, dimensionals

  2. Beautiful card, Lisa. Your butterfly is gorgeous!
