Fight Like a Girl

I am melting!  It is so darn hot and humid here.  With a heat index
over 100 and no relief in sight, I wish I could melt, for real!

Weather is one battle I can do nothing about, but a friend of mine is fighting a different kind of battle, thus the theme for tonight's card.
She starts chemo next week after 2 surgeries to remove cancer.

Image and sentiment are both from ALM Fight Like a Girl from MFT.  I used EP Springtime dp (4 different patterns!), pink Michael's cs and my white cs for stamping.  Embossing was done with my Embossalicious 6x6 folder and I used a square die to cut the insert out of the pink dp so I could mount the image there.  I stamped the boxing gloves on scrap, colored them with Copics and Spicas for sparkle and then mounted them on the image to give them a little more depth.  I added pearls in the corners for a little more bling.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Sarah Hurley Challenge - pink sparkle
In the Pink - pink & pearlie
Southern Girls Challenge - no spoolin' (I used paper instead of ribbon)

Thanks for stopping by.  Margaret will have a treat for you tomorrow!
