If you have come here from Stacey's blog, you are right on track.  If not, you can check the Hop List below.

I can't get enough of this fabulous silhouette image from Pink Power!  A dear friend of mine decided to be "bald and beautiful" during her chemo treatments and proudly displayed this exact image.

The papers from my last card where still out so I used them again (sorry...just loved them together) but this time round added a touch of lace and pearls, and then bookended the sentiment with the Ribbon Die.
