Sunshine Freedom & a Little Flower - The Hop to Stop

Again this morning, the sun was shining in the window and the card was just glittering so brightly; so I took another picture...this is truer to the color of the card, and it does have a softer glitter...but time to invest in another camera : )  
My card was made for The Hop to Stop to bring awareness to Domestic Violence.  Click here to see all the beautiful card submissions and join the Hop to Stop by simply making a card to feature purple, the color of National Domestic Violence Awareness month.  

Check it out! 

For my design I used Heart2Heart Sketch Challenge and my inspiration came from one of my favorite stamps "One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower--Hans Christian Andersen" and everyone deserves this.

When I saw your comments on my blog, I clicked on your name and it took me to your Google profile, and then I clicked on the first card I saw - this purple card was not on your profile for some reason. Not sure how that happened but thank you for pointing me in the right direction!
