Hope You Can Cling To

For the third year, SplitCoastStampers is running a breast cancer awareness campaign all during the month of October; it's called Hope You Can Cling To, and The Craft's Meow is a Pink Ribbon Sponsor!

.

Here is the card I made for one of the challenge called "Strip Please".  We are to use strips as a background to anchor our focal image.

Hope You Can Cling To

I started with strips of paper from My Mind's Eye's The Sweetest Thing honey collection, and added in some various other papers, too.  My TCM stamps are Stitched Flowers and Stitched Sentiments.  

If you'd like to participate in this wonderful cause, please make a card using The Craft's Meow stamps, and link it on The Craft's Meow blog post HERE, for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice!!  Please link it from the HYCCT gallery.
