Card for The Hop to Stop

Check it out!

You may have seen lots of cards featuring the color purple over the last couple of days and if you want to read more about it click here to visit Becca's blog, The Damsel of Distressed. She organized a hop to bring attention to National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Although I don't have first hand experience with domestic violence, I have a friend who lived through and eventually left a horrible situation. Hearing her experience and seeing the scares on her body really opened my eyes to the violence that lives behind closed doors. I hope you will join along and support Becca at The Hop To Stop!!!

Here is my card:

This card was made using the Tall Flower Bear image by Bugaboo Digi Stamps which was colored with Copic markers. I added a little clear Wink of Stella to the flower and then used a stitched rectangle die by Lil' Inkers. The image panel was matted to Rich Razzleberry cardstock and then adhered with dimensionals to the decorated card. The patterned paper is from the retired Painted Blooms dsp from Stampin' Up!. Using an encouragement sentiment by Verve Stamps, one day at a time, was stamped using Memento black ink directly onto the paper. A little Crushed Curry twine and that's it!
