MOJO Monday and HYCCT03...unsentimental

Verve released this set Believe a year ago in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month!! Fell in love with the set, not only because of the flowers {which are gorgoeus btw} or sentiments but, because research is "near and dear" to my heart!! I am a nurse by profession but, have worked in research for > 10 years now. I have lost a dear friend {college roomy} to breast cancer and my SIL was diagnosed with breast cancer this summer. We {meaning researchers, not just bench researchers but, those that try to bring new therapies to patients} work HARD to find options for the patients we see every day!!! This set is on sale right now and not only do you get a discount but, $10 from every set sold goes to breast cancer research!! WOW... can't go wrong with that!!
Used the MOJO monday sketch and HYCCT03 unsentimental {no sentiment on the front of your card}!! Here's the sketch....

Here's my card....

Stamped the stems in crumbcake onto the vanilla panel and then, stamped two sizes of the flowers, colored both with copics, popped the smaller flowers on top and added pearls. Used and EK success punch for the border on the left, pierced some and stitched by hand. Sponged and distress all panels. My scallop border is the two layers of crochet trim and added ribbon, bow, button with TCP twine and a pin {on the bottom instead of top of the card}!!

Thanks for looking!! Love when you stop by and leave comments!!
