You are so Inspiring - Ching-Chou Kuit Monarch Butterfly Girl in Pink

Once upon a time there was a girl who kicked cancer's butt. 
It was me.  The end. 

Hey there,

Breast cancer awareness cards can be as different as the survivors who receive them.  I wanted this card to be lacy and soft to go with this beautiful Ching-Chou Kuit Monarch Butterfly Girl digi.  Sometimes it's hard to know what to say to someone who is going through a difficult time, whatever their challenge might be.  I know...I've been on the receiving end as I'm sure you have, also.  I cherished every single card and note I received during my breast cancer ordeals because they made me feel loved and supported.  They undoubtedly aided me in my healing. I love this sentiment because it lets the recipient know how admired she is for her courage and strength.

I colored this card in mostly pink tones and added a pop of green to my palette for the leaves, dragonfly body and the soulful eyes on my pretty lady.  I edged my panel and my sentiment with gold and attached them with mounting tape to a fancy Spellbinders frame cut from white glitter card stock.  I added this panel  to my pink card base and embellished the frame with iridescent pink gems.

Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and be inspiring.
