Karleigh Sue September Challenge DT Post

I'm so excited to be able to share with you my very first DT creation for the September Challenge over at the brand new Karleigh Sue Challenge Blog

The theme for the challenge is 'Pink Ribbon', in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. My card uses'Soldier for a Cause', which is now available, along with all her other great digis, in the Digi Shoppe. I fell in love with her the moment I saw her as like so many women affected by this horrendous disease she is strong and brave, yet loses nothing of her beauty or femininity. I really wanted to reflect that in the card I made, so I chose to use a backing paper with granite like stones and swirls, representing both her strength and softness together. I die cut a mirror and frame and set her against it- all women should never be afraid to admire their reflection, whatever their shape or size and those suffering with breast cancer should be able to draw strength from looking closely at themselves and seeing just how amazing and courageous they are. 

 A sentiment, some pink ribbon and buttons added the finishing touches.
