You see, purple is the color of National Domestic Violence Awareness month.
1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence over the course of their lifetimes.
Let that sink in - 33% of all the women you meet.
Women between the ages of 15 and 44 are more likely to be injured or die as a result of domestic violence, than through rapes, muggings and car accidents combined.
And women aren't the only people who are affected! Women, men, transgender - gender doesn't matter. Domestic violence is something that exists regardless of gender, socioeconomic status, religion, education level, etc.
This image is one I was given and I don`t know what company it was from. Since I looked at the butterfly folder and left it home I used an Darice autumn leaves folder as I wanted some texture. The oval and rectangle were cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs.
The sentiment is from Impression Obsession.
Please join me at the Hop to Stop with your purple cards.
Thanks for stopping by to see what`s on my creating table to day.
