Card for a cause

Hello everyone,

Today I want to share a card I made for a cause that is very close to my heart...
I made it for the Becca's blog hop...for National Domestic Violence Month...
There are a lot of things I wanted to say but I think I will just share Becca's beautiful words here...

"You may have felt alone in the dark...

THERE ARE OTHERS WHO SHARE YOUR STORY

YOU ARE NOT ALONE


And no matter how many tears you've cried

IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT


Though you feel damaged and torn

THERE IS HOPE AND LIFE


Though your heart is scraped and hidden

YOU ARE WORTHY OF REAL LOVE


Because you are AMAZING. And you are more beautiful than you could ever imagine"


I hope people find strength is her words...
My heart swells up when I think about all the people who have gone through or are going through Domestic Violence...I think no one should have to go through that trauma...ever...irrespective of gender, religion, class...

I want to thank you from my heart Becca for such a great hop for shedding some light over this sensitive topic...and I am sure you have inspired many victims of Domestic Violence to be Strong and Brave...



Even if you have a splattered torn past, you are AWESOME, AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL...
You deserve to spread your wings and fly...
