My second card for the HOP to STOP...(papercrafters raising awareness about domestic violence) from the oh so wonderful and oh so talented Becca Cruger (aka The Damsel of Distressed). October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in the United States (it's held in November in Canada) and this hop is designed to raise awareness about domestic violence, an issue that impacts 1 in 3 women, and the resources that are available to assist victims of domestic violence.

You can find all the info right here.  And if you've got some time...please join in the hop.There are lots of great prizes from these amazing sponsors:

A much more simple design than yesterday's card :)  The Donna Downey face image was stamped in archival ink.  The eyes, lips and cheeks were colored with Distress Ink and then I added a layer of Stickles to the eyes and a bit on the lips for some shimmer.

A simple stamped sentiment from STAMPlorations and done!

Back soon with more my sweet friends...
