“It’s a Girl Thing” TSA Inaugural Blog Hop!

Hello friends!  So happy you are here!
Welcome to the “It’s A Girl Thing” Turner Syndrome Awareness Inaugural Blog Hop!   Before I share my project with you, here is some important information regarding what this special blog hop is all about:
Turner Syndrome is a genetic disorder where a female is born with only one X chromosome, instead of two, leaving her with life-long medical issues and learning disabilities. This condition occurs one in 2,500 female births worldwide but is more common among pregnancies that do not survive to full term. That is why Turner Syndrome Females are considered MIRACLES!

Turner Syndrome and the Butterfly

The butterfly has become the symbol for “Turner Girls”. Just like a butterfly, they are considered fragile and beautiful miracles. Turner Syndrome may also cause a myriad of health complications, such as heart defects, learning disabilities and infertility, according to the Mayo Clinic. Sept 14, 2013.

Because it represents femininity, strength, and uniqueness, the butterfly was designated by TSSUS to become the Turner Syndrome symbol. “Butterflies fly on their own which is our hope for our girls.”


I have used this digital stamp set called “Ribbons of Love” I think it’s awesome that you can choose to use the pre-colored versions from the set which I have for my card here.  It’s a perfect set to have on hand in multiple-colored ribbons that can be used for any cause you like to support!  It also has some fantastic sentiments to go with it too!  The butterfly was perfect to use for this particular cause!


I have used some papers from my stash for the background and the colors all chosen from the TS color palette!  I printed out the image and sentiment together and die cut it with a stitched circle die.  For the circle glitter layer behind it, I cut out another cardstock circle layer with some Super Adhesive Sheets over it, peeled off the backing and sprinkled some Gecko MF glitter and burnished it in.  Added some blue ribbon with a bow over the papers, attached the circle layers, flowers and pearls.  I then took a clear glitter pen and went over the butterfly with it for more shimmer.  This was all mounted over a SU! Pacific Point 5×5″ top folding card base.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card and it has inspired you in some way!  Thanks so much for dropping by and taking part in this blog hop with us!

I am happy to be donating this card along with a few others to Lori so that she can use them to help raise funds for this cause as well.

  1. What a beautiful card! I love the pretty butterfly, lovely flowers and background paper, too! I’ve read that butterflies can fly even without 70% of their wing, so that’s another reason it’s a fitting symbol for these girls who rise despite missing 50% of their chromosomes! : )


  2. A beautiful card which made me think, have I ever made a card with green and blue combinations only? It just struck what a pretty and versatile color combination this is….


  3. I like how all the colors flow together to make it a beautiful thing. Thank you for helping Lori with this endeavor

  6. A beautiful card and such a great idea. It is to pay attention to the problems of other people. Sometimes, we do not notice other people in the race of everyday life, especially those with certain health problems
