Strength & Hope


This is my card for CAS-ual Fridays first challenge.  The first week is to include text in your card.  

I've used Strength & Hope from the mini catalogue.  This is not only a fab stamp set but it's also making a difference.  Stampin' Up! are donating £1 from each set sold to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  The wooden set is £15.95 and the clear set is £12.95.

The card base is crumb cake.  I stamped the butterfly in perfect plum and then cut it out.  I stamped the text in crumb cake and positioned it on a strip of elegant eggplant with pear pizzazz flashes.  The butterfly was then positioned to overlap.  A strip of basic rhinestones bling finishes off.
