A hop to stop!

Hello Blog Lovers! :)

I am here for a cause. A worthy cause to create awareness about domestic violence! Becca from The Damsel of distressed cards  has initiated this event and I am supporting her by making this purple colored card.

You can find the blog post HERE

Purple is the color of National Domestic Violence Awareness month. 
And 1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence over the course of their lifetimes.  

And true that, women aren't the only people who are affected by it! 
By creating awareness, I want people to know that one should keep courage and believe in themselves - Because they matter! :) 

Even though one is not abused, people close to you are..It is often such a neglected topic that people prefer to remain silent rather than raise their voice.. I want to encourage them to believe in who they are and come out of that dark zone - Because you matter!
:)



For the card, I have inked the stamps with seedless preserves and weathered wood distress ink and sprinkled water over them before stamping. The stamp is from Fiskars - Scratch from petal stamp set. And sentiment from STAMPlorations - Hashtag authentic.




I am also entering it for Pinterest Inspired Challenge

 

And 



Thanks so much for stopping by!
