"HOPE" is a Word

This is my post for the Classy Cards 'n Such Challenge
this week using the inspiration photo below and to
"Think Pink"....
I would love for you to join in with us!!


Hello Classy Friends
The month of October is "Breast Cancer Awareness" month....
I am sure you all have been touched by breast cancer in your life
either by a friend or family member or both...
I know I have, and now is the time to remind your family and friends
to have an exam and/or a mammogram...
I just had mine 2 weeks ago!

We thought it would be fitting and a gentle reminder if we had
our first challenge of the month to be "Think Pink".



I made a rather large card 5 1/2" x 7 1/2".....
I started with the base of my card using the yummy 
"Stardream Rose Quartz" metallic paper.

I cut the gorgeous Anna Griffin Flower Bramble die for my next layer!!
This is such a beautiful die with so much embossed detail!!


I stamped it first, then hand cut it, popped it up with Joy! Foam Pads Large.
I stamped it one more time on my Stardream Rose Quartz Metallic paper,
then hand cut that out and also using Joy! Foam Pads, I popped it up....
But wait, I stamped it a third time and cut out the small "hope" and popped it up as well!!
I wish you could see how "3D" it really is!!!

I edged the sentiment with "Pink Taffeta" Stickles and added "Pink Pearls"
To finish my card, I cut three butterflies using Fantasy Butterflies from Joy! Crafts.

I invite "YOU" to join in our challenge this week...
We would love to see "YOUR" projects!!

Entering int he following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy .... Lots of Pink
Dragonfly Dreams .... Mainly Pink
