Hope

The challenge this week over at Cuttlebug Spot is "Pretty in Pink" in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I couldn't let this go by without participating. I made this card in honor of the wife of a dear friend who recently passed away from brain cancer. Then entire time I was making this card, I thought of her and wanted to do her proud.

I know this seems like a very simple card. But to me, this card is very elegant and tasteful which is so representative of this young woman. She was so kind and vibrant, and when you met her you just felt like you had known her forever.

The background paper is from the Thinking Pink set from Pink Petticoat. This set was a free giveaway you can get here.

Thanks so much for Looking!
