NEW FLOWERS at Wild Orchid!!!

Hi Everyone~ Today I have a VERY special card using some NEW FLOWERS to share with you!  Wild Orchid Crafts has NEW HELLEBORE FLOWERS that will be available for purchase on MONDAY!  Make sure you mark your calendar so you can get yours....these are absolutely stunning!!!

The card I am sharing today is going to a VERY SPECIAL person, her name is Elise!  Elise is going through a very difficult time right now, as she was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  Her story of course tugs at my heart so much, as my mother in law is a breast cancer survivor!  I've decided to create a card for Elise to let her know she is not alone in this fight, and that I am sending many prayers for her speedy remission! :)  Hugs to you hun!!!!  Cheryl has a Card Drive for Elise going on right now...please click -->here<-- to find out all the details! 

For my card I've use the Angel of Hope stamp from the Mini Sampler Edition #1 by Elisabeth Bell for SCACDSusana (owner of SCACD) is donating $1 to Breast Cancer Research for every Angel of Hope stamp that is purchased!  This isn't just for October either, this is EVERY time the Angel of Hope Stamp is purchased (in the set or as a single stamp)!  I love this stamp....she is so gorgeous and can be used for many occasions, such as for mine today, or for Christmas, or a thinking of you, or you are in my prayers type of card.  I used some Making Memory Breast Cancer Collection papers.

My Angel of Hope was colored with Copics and accented with a Sakura star dust pen.  The frame my angel was popped up on is made with my Slice....I recently got a Slice and am soooo in love with it!  The pearls on my frame were made with my Viva Decor Light Carmine Paper Pen.  
 Now here is what you have been waiting for.....THE FLOWERS....the large one is the NEW Hellebore,(again they will be available MONDAY at WOC) then I've added Cherry Blossoms, 15mm Roses, and 5mm Closed Rosebuds to finish off my flower arrangement.  Star Dust Stickles was used to gliterize all the flowers. 
I've used three different strands of ribbon to create my awareness ribbon and finished off with the gemstone ribbon!
From this view you can see that I have cut the angel's wings apart and popped the one wing up higher than the other for dimension!  I love the 3D look of it!
NOW....Make sure you head over to the WOC Blog for your chance to win this fantastic candy including some of the NEW HELLEBORE FLOWERS from the fabulous Paul and Siri!!!

Your ribbon awareness badge is amazing & the way you have separated the angel's wings is so effective. This angel is one of the most beautiful stamps I have seen & your showcasing of her is rightly thought provoking.
