Fight Like A Girl

If I had superpowers I would erase Cancer.   Unfortunately I don't have the power to do that, but I can stand behind my friends and family in the battle for their lives and offer prayers, support, encouragement, tears and a well timed card.


This card will be sent to one of my friend's battling breast cancer, but it was made for all of you touched by cancer in some way.  {hugs}


Butterflies are symbol of hope for a beautiful tomorrow, to me, so I chose to include a butterfly over my pink ribbon.

I'm linking up with a new challenge that I hope you will check out. The Card Concept There are so many styles represented in the design team for this challenge site that you are sure to find your own somewhere in them.  I'm pretty sure my card today fits in the Shabby Chic category, but it could also fall under Freestyle Collage and Classy & Elegant.

Fusion#4
I'm also linking up with the fusion challenge using the butterfly against a blush background. Hopefully I will get a chance to make another card using the sketch.


Sending out prayers and healing thoughts to all of you out there battling cancer or taking care of someone who is.  "Fight Like A Girl" and kick cancer's but!

Creative Blessings,
Heather North

I love this card. It's beautiful. I especially like the white leaves. It's a bit more detail and dimension. I found the stamp set on Amuse a while ago. I had to have it. That is one of my favorite sentiments.

So much dimension and interest with all the elements. Just beautiful! And that butterfly is so delicate . . . just gorgeous.

What a beautiful card - the butterfly just makes it. I, too, hate cancer. Almost everyone I've ever loved has died from it.

This card is so beautiful! I love how you combined the ribbon with the sparkly butterfly, and of course the sentiment is perfect! So thoughtful. Thanks for joining us this week at The Card Concept :)

Such a gorgeous card Heather and love that you are supporting those fighting cancer. Both my husband and I have been through it.
The background is so lovely, a perfect backdrop for the ribbon and butterfly. Thank you so much for joining us at The Card Concept.

Kim In Texas said...

Heather, I took the gorgeous card you made me to show off to my friends. Everyone LOVED it. I think we're going to have to get the butterfly die. So I'm looking at your supply list. That was not embossing paste that you used?

Heather North said...

Kim, I used embossing paste and a stencil on the card base. It's the white you can see and feel in the background. The butterfly is embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder. :)

Kim In Texas said...

Thanks for answering back Heather. We're definitely going to get some paste. But who knows maybe SU will have it in their new catalog!!! One of my favorite times of the year (new catalog preview/release/preorders)!!!

So lovely~ I've known so many who have had breast cancer and have left us and those who are cancer free now~ The thing is that they've all been so strong throughout everything~ I'm not sure I could do that~ However, when you're fighting for your life, I'm sure you have to be strong~ Lost both parents to cancer, and yes, I pray there will be a cure~
