Card of Hope and Awareness

Since October is Breast Cancer  Awareness month, I included some pink in my card today.  I made this for the challenge at Joan's Garden - Create a card using something from nature, create a card using several layers, create a card using glitter, and create a card using a border around the card.  The hardest part of this card was using some glitter....glitter and I don't get along ....but I did an edge of glitter around the edge of the image with glue and loose glitter and also added some glitter to the flowers with a Sakura Clear Star pen which is hard to see. The Morning Glory stamp is from Flourishes "A Year in Flowers".  I thought the flower, butterfly  and the sentiment of "Hope" were all appropriate for this card.
