Color Hues Challenge - Special Tribute

I am playing along with the team at Color Hues for this challenge
Lindsey was a team member there and at Seize the Birthday Challenge. Unfortunately, Lindsey passed away last year from Clear Cell Ovarian Cancer. September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and Lindsey's husband thought t would be an effective way to sell off all her crafting supplies. The proceeds will go to a fund in Lindsey's name.

These colors where Lindsey's favorite. 
Here is my card

White card stock for the base and a Criss Cross die from Amazon. 
Honey Bee Lovely layers Rose in red card stock
The butterfly is Gina K Fluttering Fall Stencil in Purple ink. 
The sentiment is from Spellbinders Gift Border and sentiments. 

This cause is close to my heart as I lost my sister and best friend to Clear Cell Cancer 6 years ago. It is a rare cancer and there is no cure. Much research still needs to be done.

I am making cards for fall as it is my favorite time of the year. But I am lucky to be leaving on a spectacular vacation. 
This will be a quick post. 
I just saw a challenge that was inviting, and I made a card for it. 

It is the colorful Options Challenge for September 2023
Outrageous Orange. 

Here is my card. 

Something new and something old for this one. I am currently shopping in my stash!

Mushrooms are Memory Box, Mushrooms, and toadstools.
(I love this die and have had it for many years and just now have been using them.)
