Hope You Can Cling To Challenge 4

Happy Tuesday everyone and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. This is a quick post today. I had some emergency dental work done today and my mouth is throbbing. Plus I want to finish this in time to watch the Presidential debate tonight.

My card is another that I made for the Hope You Can Cling to Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. More info on those here. This is challenge 4 and Victoria is our hostess. She wants us to use strips of paper to anchor our focal image.

My 5 background strips are done with Stampin-Up blushing bride designer paper.
My focal image is from the Stampin-Up "fresh vintage" stamp set. I used blushing bride and pear pizzazz markers to color the flowers. Mounted this on some early espresso cardstock.

I added some blushing bride ribbon to this layer. To complete my card I cut a flag pennant and used a sentiment from the Stampin-Up "kind and caring thoughts" set.

On the inside of the card I stamped the rest of the sentiment----"you're many things but most of all you're loved".

My layout is an older MojoMonday sketch #229.

That's my card for this challenge. Time to close this post. So until next time.........God bless.
