The Hop to STOP!





Hi there friends!   I'm participating in the Hop to Stop - this hop is to raise awareness about domestic violence - such an important issue!  Huge props to Becca Cruger for putting this together.    We are using the color purple (the color for National Domestic Violence Awareness Month) on our projects.

I've used the beautiful Butterflies stamp from Jane's Doodles on my card today.   The background was done with a variety of purple and blue Gelatos, and the butterflies were stamped with Archival Ink and then colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.   I added some accents with white gel pen and some Sparkling Clear sequins by Pretty Pink Posh.   I thought the sentiment was perfect for reminding someone important that they are beautiful and worthy of all the good things in life.

If you have time to play along, make a card with purple in it and link up!  I can't wait to see all the beautiful things you talented ladies (and gentlemen) create!!

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
