Everything in Her Power


This according to a fine organization:
"Susan G. Komen fought breast cancer with her heart, body and soul. Throughout her diagnosis, treatments, and endless days in the hospital, she spent her time thinking of ways to make life better for other women battling breast cancer instead of worrying about her own situation. That concern for others continued even as Susan neared the end of her fight. Moved by Susan’s compassion for others and committed to making a difference, Nancy G. Brinker promised her sister that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever."


Starting with The Paper Variety's challenge as inspiration for this card, I arranged the three cherry blossom images from TiffanyDoodle's newest release to her series, Granny's Yard, to create my own background paper, used two types of ink to highlight the blossoms and finished the card by one powerful sentiment.


Tiffany has tons of specials and even a fun easter egg hunt going on in April (see my side bar) that you won't want to miss out on!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (Kraft) PTI, (Pink) Recollections

Stamp, Digital: (Cherry Blossom) TiffanyDoodles
Ink: (Vintage Cream Hybrid) PTI, (Pink) Clear and Simple Stamps
Embellishments: (Ticket) Tim Holtz, (Twine) May Arts, (Button)
