Pink,Simple and Elegant

The stamp set I used to make this card is called Strength and Hope. It is a new set from Stampin' Up! and when I saw it I just knew I had to order it. For every set SU! sells,they are donating $2 to the Breast Cancer Foundation. This foundation is very near and dear to my heart.

My sister was diagnosed with breast cancer this past summer. She has gone through an operation,chemo,radiation and is now on the longest part of her journey...taking meds everyday for the rest of her life to keep the cancer(hopefully,God willing) from coming back. Through it all she was positive and kept her Mary Kay business going. I am so proud of her and she is an inspiration to me and many other people too. Love you sis!!!

With making the card I knew I wanted to make it simple but some what elegant and of course pink. I used the embossing folder and then sponged pink on it to give it alittle more color and the elegant look. The H stamp has the word HOPE under it. It is small and hard to see in the picture. I used the other stamps on the inside...of course I didn't think to take a picture of the inside of the card. I will have to add that another day.

If anyone would like to get this stamp to help the breast cancer foundation let me know and I would be more than happy to help you with that. It really is a great cause.

Happy crafting,
