Strength and Hope

Has someone you know and love been touched by breast cancer? My own grandmother is a twenty year survivor. My husband's grandmother and aunt are also survivors. So many lives have been affected by this horrific disease. That is why Stampin' Up had teamed up with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This summer, from May 1 through August 31, Stampin' Up will be selling a beautiful new set called "Strength and Hope." For every stamp set sold, Stampin' Up will donate $2 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. What a wonderful opportunity!
While the stamp set isn't available just yet, I do have a little preview for you. Just imagine all the lovely creations you could make!

This is a card that I hated to have to make. However, a lot of love and heart went into it.

This color palette was inspired by the spring Pottery Barn catalog. I found it perfect for this card.
