fantabulous cricut challenge - support the cause

first of all I believe in this cause. I am diabetic, have been for 12 years now. I am praying for a cure! The gray is used in the diabetic ribbon. The gray depicts the despair and gloom in those
affected by this disease. (polished gray or silver) represent the "lining" or the hope that there
will soon be a cure. I made this card starting off with the new twilight paper for the card.
then drew ribbon in gray and cut out and added detail. For the praying girl used chore cart.
cut at 2in for the blood drop used indie art cart the tear drop cut at 1 in and for the font
I used country life cart cut at 2in I pray for a cure for diabetics! I am sick of taking five shots a day with the cost of the strips it takes to check your blood sugar and the insulin cost is also ridulous. Maybe someday , for now I know theres a lot worst things that could happen to me.!
So I have learned to deal with it and stay positive.
