Hope

Pink, Pink, Think Pink
Its October. Breast cancer awareness month. Think pink month. I see pink all around, the stores have products packaged in pink, pink ribbons on cars and in windows.  So many things around reminding us to get our mammograms. You had yours?
This card is...well,  I'm not really happy with it, any ideas on what I can do to improve it?  The butterfly just didn't turn out like the picture I had in my head. I wanted to enter something pink over at HIMCR and it closes in a couple of hours so this one is going as is. I'm a procrastinator, always waiting til the last minute.
The butterfly is from Designed2Delight. I printed the butterfly (The Hope  Cancer awareness set) on pink, placed a ribbon (the image has the outline of a ribbon) there in the middle and added gems and Stickles around the wings. The flower border is also in the set.  I colored most of the flowers using various pens. I used stickers for the word "Hope". I don't normally use letter stickers and I have a large accordion file that is brimming over with alpha stickers. I'm going to have to donate them somewhere.

I think your card is just beautiful as is, Joyce! I love the ribbon for the body of the butterfly. Such pretty patterned paper and border, too.
