Light it Up for Autism Awareness {Beautiful Just the Way You Are}


Today I am participating in the Light it Up Blue for Autism Awareness blog hop. My friends, Tenia and Veronica have organized this hop to shed some light on Autism. Being an educator, this hits near to my heart and I knew I wanted to be a part of this wonderful celebration. 


World Autism day was yesterday...and I wore blue to celebrate. Today I am linking up a brand new card that I made with some Altenew Stamps called Vintage Roses and a sentiment from Verve called Beautiful.


I went for a clean and simple (CAS) design and used some Verve sequins to highlight my roses. 


There is a FANTASTIC line up of sponsors who have generously donated prizes and time to make this hop all about friendship, support, and fabulous prizes! To link up, be sure to visit the blog of either Veronica or Tenia. Come and show your support.


I used the sketch at Splitcoast Stampers for my inspiration and flipped it upside down.
