Love, Strength, Hope

It's time for another Sentimental Sundays Challenge.

This weeks challenge is:
plus a sentiment

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and while I was at my moms house using the Internet, I came across these images and sentiments, that were created for this cause by Kellie and Ann at Tickled Pink. Kellie is trying to raise $100 and is selling 3 images and a 9 sentiment pack for $1.00 each!!! Head over there and check them out!!!

So here is my sample card:

I put this card together is under 30 minutes. 
Before packing up all my supplies 2 weeks ago, I pulled random items (paper trimmer, tape runner, white/kraft/black cardstock, copics, patterned paper) and stashed it inside my Art Bin box. This card has no embellishments at all….It’s all paper!! I can't believe that I was able to do this!!! I wish I had at least a black pen to doodle like Jen and Lou do. 

I wish now that I didn’t put the black under the eyes, because she looks more like a football player than a boxer ready for the good fight!!! ;(

Well gang, I hope to see you link up to this weeks challenge and I can’t wait to come by and visit. 

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
(pink and grey)
