Strength & Hope - The Paper Players Challenge 44

I haven't shared for a couple of days - one day due to illness, and last night I modeled in a Fashion show - a fund raiser for a type of cancer that kills young children.  I was happy to volunteer for this important task. So the choice for today's stamp was a no brainer.  Cancer is cancer - and can be a killer.  Rhabomyoscarcoma (a mouthful) is was killed the 8 year old grand daughter of a friend of mine, who was the organizer of this fundraiser hoping to help fund research to find a cure.  The colors I used for this card represent some of the colors of the 5 different outfits I modeled for this event.
My share today is for The Paper Players Challenge at this location

Stamp: Strength & Hope
Inks: Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Tangerine Tango, Cherry Cobbler, Bashful Blue, Cherry cobbler marker to isolate the word "Courage" for the sentiment
Papers: Marina Mist, Paisley Petals Designer Paper, Whisper White, Marina Mist, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Scallop border punch, Curly Label Punch, Rhinestones, 1 14" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, Scallop circle die #2, dimensionals, paper piecer, Heart to Heart  punch, dazzling diamonds.

The butterflies were stamped using the rock and roll technique.  Two  of the butterflies were stamped with Bashful Blue and Marina Mist, and on the other two Tangerine Tango and cherry Cobbler.  I also used the same technique for the H (tangerine tango and cherry cobbler).  The butterflies were hand cut and mounted on top of each other.  Rhinestones were put on the body and top of the antennae.

In the center of the focal point, I repeatedly stamped the word stamp using Baja breeze ink, and the butterflies were mounted on top of that.
The 1" band was stamped with the floral image of the stamp set.  I punched out the smallest heart from the Heart to Heart punch and mounted it on top of the heart of this floral image.  Of course the card had to have a little bling, so dazzling diamonds was put on these hearts.

What a great bunch of colors. And you've made the rock and roll technique look easy. I always seem to have a little trouble with it!
