HOPE ...

First I need to thank everyone for their sweet comments on my blog for the DeNami Fall Blog Hop. 

Now onto my card in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  This card is for Designed2Delight October Progressive Challenge and Sassy Studio Design Dare to be Sassy Thursday #93. I also decorated the inside this time. 

At Yolie's suggestion I am also linking this lovely up to the First Annual Link up for Pink.

The lovely butterfly is part of the Progressive Challenge FREEBIE from D2Delight as part of their Hope 2011 Digital Stamp Set.  I colored the butterfly with my Copic Markers, fussy cut it out, attached it to my embossed cardbase with 3D Tape, and added a rhinestone swirl behind it.

The inside was created with stamps from Avocado Arts "My Wish for You" set.  Avocado Arts is generously donating a portion of the sales from this stamp set is being donated to Isaacs Foundation.

Thanks for stopping by!
