Pink at Live & Love Crafts!

Happy October, sweet friends! I hope your month is off to a beautiful start. :o) Today begins a new challenge at Live & Love Crafts, which is Pink! Gather your favorite pink goodies and play along with us. :o)

For my project, I created an encouragement card for a mother suffering the unthinkable heartbreak of losing her little daughter to an incurable disease. She was the bravest little toaster, inspiring us all with every breath of life. ♥︎
My papers are from Maja Design's Coffee in the Arbour, which is a favorite collection. Wild Orchid Crafts flowers are trimmed in Glamour Dust, blossoming alongside a lattice heart. The heart frame is from the Silhouette Online Store, while the inner lattice is Cheery Lynn Designs Small French Lattice. Cheery Lynn Mini Fanciful Flourishes scroll beneath my flowers.
Indeed I am sending her every ounce of love within me... praying that joy blossoms in her shattered heart. My sentiment is from JustRite's With Sympathy stamp set. The resin heart is a recent gift from my sweetheart, which is from Prima's Shabby Chic Treasures Hearts collection and tucked within a Shabby Chiffon ruffle of love. It is sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage.
The card base is Cheery Lynn's Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frames, where love blossoms within. Flat-back pearls, sunflower pearls, and a heart pearl accent the front, along with a sweet doily for softness. I pray she feels every ounce of healing love with which this was created. ♥︎

Be sure to check out the inspiring work of my teamies at the LLC blog! I can't wait to see what you link up this month. :o) Thank you for visiting me and I wish you a beautiful day!
