Challenge Title: I Will Survive
Hostess: Toy aka Holly
Date: Saturday, October 18, 2011
~*~*~*~*~*~ I Will Survive ~*~*~*~*~*~
Year after year, the number of women/men who survive breast cancer increases tremendously. My mother, who passed in 1992 from breast cancer, left behind six sisters. Of those, four have been through the fight and three are considered survivors. Only one sister continues her battle and she has been battling for nearly NINE years! Breast cancer has touched our family to the degree that my cousin and his wife both went to school to do cancer research and now they are teaching doctors at Colorado State University.
You will see a sea of pink in October, but I think we should add some PURPLE for the survivors. Not only did they fight the good fight and WIN, but they blazed a trail for those of us who may one day walk that path.
Your challenge to day is to make an encouraging card/project using any shade of purple.

This is my lucky day! I have a whole 12x12 container filled with purple items I received from a Color Burst Swap! Now to figure out what I want to do with them....I already made one monochromatic purple card for this challenge so I'll want to do something different this time....
Had a second die cut already along with the extra butterflies so I threw together (hahaha...took me way too long!) another that I'll send to my mom since I used Scripture, but here's my Embossed Petals
Here is my HYCCT1118 purple card. To go with the survivor theme I choose a key as the focal point of the card. I painted the key and sprinkled it with perfect pearl while wet. I'm making four cards to send in.
