Strength and Hope

I love this set, and am surprised I am just now using it!  It is unusual for me to use all the images in one set in one card, but I challenged myself to step it up a bit!  Here is what I came up with!

I used this weeks Color (330) and Sketch (340) challenges from SCS as well.  Here are a few details...
  • The butterfly is colored with markers on vellum, then cut out and posted on dimentionals
  • The H (hope) is embossed on a Window Sheet using Melon Mambo embossing powder that has been mixed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.. I punched it out using a circle punch.
  • The flourish is also embossed in Melon mambo mixed with iridescent ice embossing powder.
  • and.....I realized when I had the whole card done...I embossed the layer with finial press...upside down...oh well, I consider it a creative moment, not a mistake!


there you go!  Have a great week!
