Challenge Title: Rays of Hope
Date: Monday, October 1st, 2012
Hello and welcome to the third annual Hope You Can Cling To Challenge! We are SO excited to have you here, and so grateful for your participation in this inspiring event!
Finding out that you,a family member or friend has cancer is such a shock. You don't know what to say, you are angry, frustrated, sad.....the world turns gray. But there is always hope and lot of times, the cancer does not win. To show that hope in your cards, create a project (or color an image) mostly in gray tones, but at one splash of color.

Like many, I thought this challenge was going to have something to do with rays -- and I had an instant thought as I was reading the description. When I got to the "splash of color" part, I had to back up five yards and punt! Here's my card --
