Green Hope Ribbon

Hello!  This week at Tuesday Throwdown we are sponsored by  All Dressed Up
https://www.etsy.com/shop/alldressedupstamps and our theme is "For A Cause". 
I know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but I kind of wanted to give a little attention to some other cause.  I looked on the Awareness Ribbon Color Chart and found that the Green Ribbon covered MANY causes, including Mental Health and Mental Illness. I chose this because I've just recently learned the "rest of the story" of a sweet little boy my friends adopted who occasionally had behavior problems.  Those behaviors became more extreme and more frequent.  They finally had to place him in a facility to get help.  They found this poor little boy had been so abused in his early childhood that he had developed 15 different personalities!  FIFTEEN!  Imagine the horrible things he endured to cause this issue.  Thankfully, he is getting the help he needs, but imagine all the people who can't pay for this treatment. 

Anyway, here is my card:

I used our sponsor's image "Oriental Girl" and colored her with Spectrum Noir markers.  The ribbons are a Circut cut.  The top floral paper is a scrap and the name is gone.  The bottom paper is a Cricut print. 

I felt it needed a little bling, but no more busyness, so I used Glitter Gel Pens to highlight the ribbons and various places on the image.

So thanks for stopping by and hearing a little bit of my heart.  I hope you'll join us with your projects and your cause!
