"It's a Girl Thing" Turner Syndrome Hop and Challenge

Hi, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card for the "It's a Girl Thing" Blog Hop and Challenge to help spread awareness of Turner Syndrome to as many people as possible in hopes of getting the medical field to do more research on how Turner Syndrome affects girls and women throughout their lifetimes.  I learned about Turner Syndrome from last year's hop; this genetic disorder only affects females, and less than 2% of babies conceived with Turner Syndrome survive to birth.  

I am happy to participate in this year's hop and challenge to help spread the word.  I hope you'll join too - you have until February 28 to participate!

I made a thinking-of-you card using a silhouette floral image and butterflies from one of the hop sponsors, Beccy's Place Fallow Fields set. The background paper is We Are 3 Digital Shop Pastel Fantasy, which I recently won (thank you, Bonnie!).  The sentiment is from Deedee's Digis (sadly no longer in business).  I adhered a scalloped stitched frame (Gina Marie Designs) in pink glitter cardstock and then mounted on a black panel.  To finish the card, I adhered three punched butterflies in the same glitter cardstock, topped with pink gems.

I would also like to join the following 9 challenges, for a total of 10:

2 Crafty Critter Crazies February Critters Including Insects 3/5

Cardz TV 134 AG 3/3

Beccy's Place February AG with Beccy's Place product UE

Get Creative AG Optional Theme Use Red or Pink (I used pink) 2/3

Word Art Wednesday 477-478 AG w Uplifting Sentiment 4/5 wk2

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!
