Hope is...


Over on the Creative Inspirations Wednesday Challenge blog, the challenge this week is to make a card with a sentiment but no image. I really love inspirational cards/sayings so this was a very enjoyable card for me to make. The problem was that there are so many quotes that I love, it was tough to decide on just one. I finally decided on this "hope" quote by Emily Dickinson.

Also, this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room is to make a card from scraps. So I used some scraps of K&Co. paper for the sentiment panel and the flower, The flourish was die cut with a Boss Kut die from a scrap. The frame was cut with a Spellbinders die from a scrap of thin cardboard. I cut two and glued one on top of the other to build up the thickness then coated it with chunky glitter. The two back panels are also K&Co. paper one of which was embossed with a SU embossing folder. A few chocolate colored half pearls and some vintage-type seam binding finished it off.

The other DTs at Creative Inspirations have some wonderful sentiment cards to share with you this week, so please stop by and take a look. Stop by their personal blogs and leave them so love too! Thanks for coming by today to see what I made for the Creative Inspirations challenge and thanks for the lovely comments too!

Blessings,
