Impressed, Amazed, Inspired... By You

Did you miss me?  It's been a crazy few weeks.  I won't bore you with the details...

I'm trying to participate in this year's Hope You Can Cling To Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  Trying to do 33 cards in 31 days is very difficult for me and some of the challenges are a real stretch but I really enjoy the effort.  This card was for the challenge to make a card using 5 words.  I was given this SU sentiment set as a thank you with purchase.  I thought it was the perfect sentiment for those amazing women in our lives.  The image is Think Pink by My Favourite Things.  I won it two years ago as part of the Hope You Can Cling to Challenge.  I think part of the reason I enjoy this so much is that it's the perfect excuse for me to make some girly cards, use pink and add flowers.  With a mainly testosterone-driven household, this is a nice change.  The image was paper pieced; another technique I don't use enough.  The rhinestone is actually clear, I don't know why it appears navy in this image.

Challenges this Card Meets:
CAS-ual Fridays - Celebrate the Women in our Lives
Cupcake Crafts - Think Pink
The Crafty Bloggers' Network - Anything Goes
Use it Tuesday - Use Your Scraps (The DP base and the white for the images and sentiment.)
Victorine Challenge - Lots of Layers
