The next Hope You Can Cling To challenge is Holding It Together.

"Holding it together...or falling apart.When someone gets the diagnosis that they really didn’t want and hears that they have cancer, they can feel that their world is falling apart. Sadly many women who hear this news have families, and they have find that inner core of resilience to hold it together for their families. 
My challenge to you is to hold it together without your usual resources. No foam dots, no ATG or other tape, no wet glues or Glossy Accents, no glue gun...
You can use things like brads, eyelets, stitching (machine or hand), staples…
NOTE1: You can’t just make a flat one-layer card. You MUST attach something, even if it’s only a flower with a button stitched through the centre, or a snowflake with a brad to hold it on.Kudos and bonus points if you make at least at two-layer card.
NOTE 2: Keeping up appearances. Just as a wig or a stylish headscarf helps somebody going through chemo to look good and feel better even when all their hair has fallen out from chemo, we want our cards to look good.So you ARE allowed make a full card-front (full means the FULL size of the card base) and then attach that to a base with your regular adhesive of choice, to cover up the stitching, brad prongs and whatever else might be showing on the back of your card. But that is the only adhesive you are allowed to use."
