Bloom & Grow

Hello friends!

I am delighted to be part of the Paper Crafters Unite Against Racism IG Hop today. 

 The goal of this hop is to continue to raise awareness about anti-racism; to stand with our BIPOC, AAPI, Palestinian, and Indigenous communities, and to encourage everyone to continue learning and to start taking action. Injustice Anywhere is Injustice EVERYWHERE. We are all one humanity and should find a way to #showup for equity and equality, in a way that makes sense for YOU.

 Be sure to check it out today at 3pm EDT at my IG HERE.

 I am not an activist, but I do what I can as any good citizens should. I voice concerns and ideas about Inclusion within my local community. I try to be a good model Asian citizen that I can and promote #stopasianhate #stopaapihate. I created this card based on the belief that we can all bloom and grow if we all stay united and strong. Please support this hop and help share this important message.

Here is my project with Flowing Foliage.

I am only using two of the dies from this set and created a bouquet with leaves of various colors. The design was inspired by the "same but different" look from the blog hop logo.

As you can see, I used 6 different color of paper which symbolize the different skin color.

I paired it up with the sentiment from "Bloom & Grow". The background paper is from Gel Printing Pattern paper.

I also added a few pieces of Gold Washi Paper to the paper before diecutting. These leaves now have a bit of shine and interest.

This is something I can always support. The only way we can survive is by working together to make life better. Love the way you've shown that on your wonderful card. It is a glorious, beautiful thing.

We can start by setting a good example for our children . My two daughters are grown now and have families of their own . I’m proud of the way they have taught their children that everyone is the same no matter what color their skin is , or what their background is . Be kind and help others .
