Just because

Over at Splitcoast stampers the annual Hope You Can Cling To challenge is going on for Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Stampers worldwide are encouraged to join in the challenges to create cards.  All participants are encouraged to send their cards made to MD Anderson Hospital in Houston, Texas.  The cards will fill baskets which then the volunteers will distribute in the Breast Center. As they make their visits each day and introduce themselves to patients, they encourage the patients to select one of the handmade cards. These special cards truly offer hope and lift the spirits of everyone during Breast Cancer Awareness month! 

I wanted to join in the challenges for card layouts and ideas and for this card I used the Star burst (or Sunburst) layout challenge.  This was a lot of fun to do the star burst with paper piecing.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Stampin' Up! Strength and Hope, Papertrey Ink sentiment
Ink: Memento Angel Pink and Memento Rich Cocoa
Card Stock: Stampin' Up!
Designer Paper: Making Memories "Sabrina" Paper pad, vellum
Accessories: Pink twill ribbon, miscellaneous silver cord for antennae and wrap, Making Memories half crystals (pink), Nestabilities snowflake die.

Until next time,

  1. This card is absolutely gorgeous, Jennifer! I love the combo of the patterned papers and the butterfly focus. The recipient will be in awe at how stunning it is.
