Pink & Hope

This is one of those cards where I started creating not knowing how it would end up.  I wanted to use the butterfly from Flourishes "Butterflies and Blossoms" for my Timeless Tuesday entry. Then I saw Darnell's beautiful pink & green card for the Muse challenge with her post concerning Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Darnell's Muse Card
I took her color scheme & the message of hope for my card. The butterfly is black embossed twice, colored with COPICS, fussy cut & attached just in the center so the wings can move. First time using twine for antennas--so much easier than cutting them out!  I used 3 shades of pink cardstock die cut with Spellbinders squares & Fleur-de-Lis square. The sentiment is from Flourishes "Pears." I finished with pearls colored with the green COPIC & some Stickles on the butterfly.   
Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog & don't forget to schedule your mammogram!
