Delightful Strength and Hope

Here is the first card I made with the Strength and Hope stamp set I just received from Stampin' Up.  There are only a few days left to get this exclusive stamp set for yourself as the  Strength and Hope promotion that Stampin' Up is sponsoring ends on August 31!   Remember that Stampin' Up will donate $2 from the purchase of each Strength and Hope stamp set and/or digital download to further breast cancer research. 
Since some of my loved ones are struggling with other types of cancer, I decided to make the butterfly image "yellow" on my card (more specifically Daffodil Delight).  I had seen a card  made by Shelley which inspired me.  As you can see, I changed up the design and colors a bit on my version, although I kept the "yellow" butterfly as the main focal point.  I love this color combination of Soft Suede and Daffodil Delight as it seems so warm and soothing.

Ink:  Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Early Espresso, Soft Suede
Cardstock:  Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Accessories:  Daffodil Delight 1/8" Taffetta Ribbon, Neutrals Brads, Modern Label Punch, Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
