I'm absolutely smitten with today's featured set, Words of Wisdom -- so much so that it easily joins my short list of all-time favorite sentiment sets! It's not just that the sentiments are fantastic and thoughtful and empowering and uplifting, it's that the font combinations are so amazingly fresh and wonderful. This set is going to be very hard to put down!

For today's card, I decided to make a very pink and very girly breast cancer encouragement card using the "keep fighting" sentiment from Words of Wisdom and a sweet little pink ribbon from Believe. You could easily change the color combo and this would work with any of the awareness ribbon colors!

I took no fewer than 47 pictures of this card, trying to get one to come out just right. Alas, it proved tricky to photograph, so here's a close-up along with another full shot from a different angle:
