Pink it is......

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.....
I created this card for Creative Imaginations!
In recogintion of ALL who have overcome or
are overcoming a "life altering illness"
I say.........DREAM BIG!!!!
I began by creating my card base from Beach Cottage Paper.
I pulled out my Iron Romance ExiStencil
and lathered on some gesso.

When it was dry.....
I spritzed the card face with Sweet Whisper ~ Shimmering Mist.
I just love how the color settled in the crevices.

Of course, I had to tear up the edges of my card!!!

I pulled out a package of Devotion ~ Die Cuts and
found the perfect verbage for my card!!
The butterfies I used are from the same package of Die Cuts.
I just rubbed a little gesso on them to tone 'em
down so they would flow with my card!!
To finish of the card....
I spritzed a Color Me Crazy flower
with Sweet Whisper ~ Shimmering Mist.
I then painted on a bit of Persimmon ~ Shimmering Mist
to add depth to the flower.
A few accent flowers.....a loopy bow
and my card is complete!!! 
I may have used this quote before....
but it just speaks volumes!!! 
Hold fast to your dreams,
for it dreams die,
life is a broken winged bird 
that cannot fly!!
