Mod Squad - In The Pink For October

This week at Mod Squad the challenge is In The Pink For October.  With so much going on this month concerning Breast Cancer Awareness, I knew I wanted to make a card with soft colors and very feminine.  This is what I came up with.

I looked through my stamps searching for something with an appropriate sentiment and this one fit the bill.  This wonderful set is from Gina K. Designs and is called Don't Lose Hope.  It is a stamp set duo which includes a cute butterfly and the sentiment Don't lose hope, because you never know what tomorrow will bring.  Isn't that a perfect sentiment!  We all need hope.  Without it, what do we have?

I was having trouble finding patterned paper for the background, so I ended up making my own by stamping the butterfly with Innocent Pink ink on Bazzill Tutu Pink card stock.  I chose a pretty die from Spellbinders called Romantic Rectangles, added some ribbon and pearls.  The butterflies were paper pieced with some paper from my stash and I'm not sure who made it.  Thanks so much for coming by to look!  I am, also, linking this Cat's Just a Word Challenge over at Stamp TV.
