Hope


I bundled up a few challenges all in one.... I used the Simon Says Stamp and Show your Flourish, City Crafter's Challenge - Birds of a Feather, Hero Arts and Wee Memories are both Summertime challenges. Oops I forgot the colors were from the ColourQ challenge this week.

So how does that all come together in one card:

I started with a master board which was very relaxing because I pulled out the glimmer mists and chalkboard to mix up the colors from the ColourQ challenge this week. I added a layer of flourishes along with the music background. Then the edges are sponged in Vintage photo. 

The sentiment is Verses Rubber Stamps  Hope Feathers QQ1007-D stamped on tracing paper. (I decided the vellum I was finding was too thick so I went into the tracing paper section and picked up a pack)
Products: Hero Arts - Tall Birdhouse, Fabulous Flourish, Music Background, Two Birds, Big Clock, Tattered Angels - Glimmer Mist - Tuscany Sun, Chalkboard Mists, Ranger Distress Inks - Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo, Olive

The lovely ColourQ colours: 

Hope you have a wonderful day!
