Thank Heavens for Little Girls
Splitcoast Stampers is running a challenge a day for a card drive for Breast Cancer Survivers called the "Hope You Can Cling To Challenge." What a great cause for creating cards and supporting. This card is for the "Thank Heavens for Little Girls" challenge. We were to create a card based on the song and two pictures of little girls surrounded by all their pink possessions. Truthfully, it just gave me hives! It made me so grateful for my little boys! I love little girls, I just hate pink. I hate princesses. I hate damsels in distress. My favourite fairy tale is "The Paperbag Princess" by Robert Munsch. Especially since my Uncle's name is Ron and my mother is Elizabeth. It gives me a giggle every time. Honestly, go read it. It's hilarious!
The card uses some pink Brazzil paper I got at a going out of business sale. The image is Miss Rosalie with Roses from CC Designs. Thank you Janneke for that! The pendent at the bottom of the card was a gift from Kristina, thank you too! I sponged it in Pretty with Pink and added some heart brads. The DP is more of my Costco kit which I ran through the Big Shot with my lace cuttlebug folder. That really added some umph to some very simple paper. I'm actually getting far more use out of that DP than I ever thought. I will have to go thank DH for that Christmas present again!
