“Hope” is the thing with feathers…

There are a couple of ladies on the Simply B Stamps’ Fan Page who are fighting cancer so a group of us are making cards to brighten their day and here is my first featuring Go Pink Betty.

I’ve done the card up in white and teal as they are the colours for cervical cancer, which Rachel sadly has and kept it fairly CAS.  CAS is the current theme at Crafting When We Can so I’m entering it in there.

I tried to do the butterflies on the teal paper in white but I didn’t have any other white ink pad handy other than my StazOn and I think it dried up so they are sparkly but not white and a bit hard to see.  They are, however, embossed so I am entering this in the current challenge at Time Out.

To jazz it up a bit I did add some extra sparkle and bling in the Sparklets, with those I have the twist for the Time Out challenge and also meet the theme for Fairytale Stampers' current challenge so am also entering my card there.  I swapped the sentiment element for my Sparklets as I used a Tim Holtz Word Band instead of a ribbon slide; I thought the sentiment was fitting.
