Floral Princess and Warrior Card – Essentials by Ellen May 2017 Pin-Sights Challenge



Recently, Ellen Hutson and her crew created the Courage stamp and die set to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Fund. I waffled on whether or not I wanted to purchase it – it looked lovely, but it was a lot of money (a good deal, no doubt – 33 stamps, 13 dies, 1/2 of the purchase price goes to the charity…I’m just low on cash). I had it in my cart several times, but I would delete it. Then, I heard that one of the teachers we had in elementary school days is just beginning her breast cancer journey. I bought the set that night.

I am a newbie at multi-step florals, this set seemed pretty forgiving.

I am entering this into the Essentials by Ellen May 2017 Pin-Sights Challenge. And the card has been mailed to our friend beginning her journey.

Here is the inspiration:
