Inspired to Create!

If you missed my last post, please take a moment to read about a selfless group of ladies who are giving back in a BIG way!  Click HERE.  They are now creating cards for the I Feel the Love Project
These ladies have inspired me to make more cards for this month's  I Feel the Love Project!  As you know, the I Feel the Love Project collects and sends handcrafted cards to individuals, families, and groups who are experiencing a difficult time in their life/lives.
For the month of February 2014, we are collecting uplifting, cheerful greeting cards for the sweet kids spending time at Santa Monica UCLA medical Center.  These kids were chosen to be a part of this project by Ms. Ashley, a two time cancer patient who has herself received care at this facility. Click HERE to read all the details and learn how you can be a part to this fabulous project.

The adorable girl was cut using the Silhouette. You can find her at, "Support," at Creative Kuts.
As you can see, the original cutting file comes with two girls.  I edited the file using Photoshop. The sentiment "LOVE" and the Bible verse were designed and cut on the Silhouette as well.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Love to Create Challenge Blog - Red and/or Pink
