My Grafico Card for Breast Cancer Awareness

Happy Wednesday!
I hope you didn't think I'd abandoned the My Grafico Challenge when you didn't see my card on Monday.
We have split into 2 teams and now my cards will be seen on Wednesday.
Plus it means you have two different choices when it comes to entering as the Monday Challenge will be a Color Challenge and the Wednesday will be a Sketch Challenge so you can chose whichever suits you best!
It's much better for me to be on a Wednesday anyway as I have another team on a Monday and each card really needs a day of it's own :)
This week we are honoring everyone who has been affected by Breast Cancer will our creations.
I chose this wonderful clip art set by Kelly Medina instead of digital stamps this week. I hope I can show that you still make it look "your own" if you dress it up.

I tried to find some challenges to go with this piece but it was a struggle this week.
3 Clovers wanted us to Think Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Sunflowers and Dragonflies wanted Sparkle and Shine
CupCake Crafts had the theme of Thanks a Bunch and while this card could be a "thinking of you" card it could just as well be a Thank You card.
Crafty Catz wanted to see Butterflies
Crafty Card Makers wanted to see Ribbons
Finally Flutterby Wednesdays had a free for all as long as it had a fairy or butterfly!

I printed the clip art with the butterfly flying above the flower trio.
The dp is Martha Stewart from her baby girl block at Walmart. I added rhinestones to the centers of the flowers and added heart rhinestones to the side. I used a Fiskars border punch and made strips to fit around the side of the card. The sentiment is a Studio G $1 stamp from Michaels and I stamped it with Bamboo Memento ink.

The inside is more dp with a message mat.

I hope to see you join in with the sketch at the My Grafico Challenge!
