Today I'm sharing another purple card for The Hop to Stop (see more details below). I used an adorable image from By Miss Rach. I mentioned to Miss Rach during the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop that I am always on the lookout for kitties with hot beverages, and she quickly designed not one but three adorable kitties, one with coffee, one with cocoa, and this precious kitten with tea.
According to Miss Rach, all of these images will eventually be available as freebies, so you'll have to join her blog and stay tuned! She offers a new freebie every week (here's the most recent one) and holds weekly challenges as well, so you will want to head over so you don't miss out!
I coloured this precious one with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut so I could pop her up with foam tape. She is layered on some glittery banners (DCWV glitter paper, die-cut with Taylored Expressions Banner Stacklets 1) and a polka-dot vellum circle. I created the card base by adding strips of purple washi tape and one thin strip of gold washi tape. The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp, and I heat-embossed it in white on a black scrap and then hand-cut into a banner shape.
As mentioned above, I am supporting The Hop to Stop. It's a blog hop designed to raise awareness about domestic violence. One in three women will experience domestic violence over the course of their lifetimes. Just think about it... that's 33% of all the women you meet. Purple is the domestic violence awareness colour. I explained my connection to this issue in a previous blog post.
For more information on domestic violence,you can visit the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence. Canadians can find out more here. I hope to see you at The Hop to Stop to support this important issue.
