Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #21

This is Hope You Can Cling To Challenge #21 - my own challenge for this very worthy card drive. All month Splitcoast Stampers are hosting a series of daily challenges to support Breast Cancer Month and I was asked to be a hostess this year.

My challenge is a very personal one and is dedicated to my lovely Aunt Heather, who unfortunately  was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. Luckily for her, it was caught very early and her treatment was started immediately. So far the treatment has been very successful and we hope it now stays away for good!

Heather truly showed what a strong fighter she was throughout her whole treatment and her love of life is just amazing (she's putting on a huge family party later on this year to celebrate "Life" and just how important it really is to be with loved ones!). One thing I love most about her is her love of all things Elvis - I think she still has a clock of Elvis on her living room wall! Now he's not my cup of tea, but I do find myself singing along with his songs that I was brought up on.

So my challenge is dedicated to her and is to make a card inspired by all things Elvis, be that the King of Rock 'n' Roll himself, his music, song titles, lyrics, his sequined outfits, his military uniform, whatever you like, but your card needs to show something Elvis-y!

And here's my card - can you guess which song title I used for this one?
