Strength and Hope

I decided I would purchase this Stampin' Up stamp set while the Strength and Hope campaign was still current.  It finishes on the 31st July.  For each Strength and Hope stamp set that Stampin' Up sell, they will donate $2 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
These cards I made after seeing this card by Lianne Carper.  I used the same sketch but added another layer of cardstock (love layers), pearls on the butterfly and did my seam binding/lace differently.  The Antique Brads in our current SU catalogue are gorgeous to use as are the Vintage Trinkets currently on a carry over flyer.
My Rich Razzleberry version of Lianne's card used some retired pale plum cardstock and ink.
I don't have these cards anymore, they were snapped up very quickly so will have to get in and make some more versions.
Thanks for visiting today.
