Hope is a Word

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the back background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Great Chain Wire Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

I stamped the Justrite Cornflower Damask Background using Perfect Medium. I dusted Tropic Blue Mica Powder from Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set over the surface and removed the excess with a dry wet wipe.

I stamped the main image from the Justrite Hope & Love Vintage Labels 8 & 9 Clear Stamp Set onto Sky Blue Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 8.

I cut a couple of sets of leaves out of Sky Blue Card using Sue's Faux Quilled Leaves Die Set and made a couple of flowers out of White Crochet Ribbon.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Self Adhesive Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
