Today's card is all about raising awareness against domestic violence, the amazing becca cruger had put it all together and there are prizes too. I have used the gorgeous altenew flower beautiful day. The background was created with ken oliver starburst..so vibrant and pretty! The uplifting sentiment is from hero arts set called you are my happy. I thought it was fitting for any of us who need to hear those words! Play along to help becca share and help put a stop to domestic violence!
sketch and scrap: world card making month/sketch#2
You see, purple is the color of National Domestic Violence Awareness month.
1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence over the course of their lifetimes.
Let that sink in - 33% of all the women you meet.
Women between the ages of 15 and 44 are more likely to be injured or die as a result of domestic violence, than through rapes, muggings and car accidents combined.
And women aren't the only people who are affected! Women, men, transgender - gender doesn't matter. Domestic violence is something that exists regardless of gender, socioeconomic status, religion, education level, etc.
And yet, it's something that is rarely talked about in very public ways. It's something that's hidden and hushed. And since paper crafters are some of the most amazing people out there, some of you have agreed to make a card (or cards) to raise awareness for this issue.Together, we CAN make a powerful impact.
