Because I Care... 45

Mona Pendleton | Monday, October 1, 2012 @ 10:55 PM | , , ,

Hi there! I'm here today to share a card I made for a very special cause ~ the 3rd Annual Hope You Can Cling To at Splitcoaststampers. For the ENTIRE month of October, there will be many challenges and each card made will be mailed to the UT MD Anderson Cancers Center. Please click HERE for complete details.

I chose to join along with my dear blogging friend Beate's challenge titled ~ Rays of Hope ~ which is to show that hope in your cards, create a project (or color an image) mostly in gray tones, but at one splash of color.
I made this fairly CAS (clean and simple) card combining a few of my favorite products. I used patterned paper from the soon to be released Pink Paislee City Sidewalks collection for the main background then layered an embossed piece of MFT Whip Cream cs on top.
I stamped and embossed the beautiful butterfly from MFT Inspired By Butterflies on a vellum die cut that was made using the coordinating die. I added a splash of pink by finishing off the butterfly with a rolled rose bud made using Die-namics MINI Rolled Roses:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Unscripted Sketches challenge
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you are able to join along for such a great cause! 
Be Sweet :)

**I'll be back Wednesday with an all new MFTWSC challenge**
