Canvas Corp Brand CCB Creative CrewI think we have all been impacted by Breast Cancer; as a survivor, as a supporter, or through someone we know that died.

I love how this card came out!  In particular, I love the how the metal hearts mimic darker nipples over the pink rope breasts.  You might not immediately catch this just looking at it…but, it is an intentional part of the design.
