Hope You Can Cling To Challenge 5

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I am doing so well after the dental work I had done yesterday. Pain was minor and ibuprofen helped with that.
I even was able to go over and meet my grandsons school bus. I helped Ethan with his vocabulary homework and made everyone an after school snack. The other 2 boys had to be taken back to school at 5:30 for a basketball game tonight. I did get to see both of them play so that was fun for me. Then headed back home around 7:30.
So onto my card for today. This is another one that I made for the Hope You Can Cling To challenge on Splitcoaststampers. For more info on the challenge - click here.
Kathy was our hostess for this 5th challenge and she wants us to make a card that inspires strength and courage.

I decided to meet her challenge requirements through the colors I used on my card and my sentiment.

Color red - represents strength
Color orange - represents joy and energy
Color brown - represents health
Butterflies - represent hope

My card base is poppy parade and the designer papers are from Stampin-Up's "everyday enchantment" & "christmas cocoa" collections. The designer paper has shades of poppy parade, peach parfait and soft suede.

My image is from Stampin-Up's "fresh vintage" set. I stamped in poppy parade and lucky limeade.
My hope sentiment is from an unknown set. The layout is last week's Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge #406. 

Well that's it for me today. So until next time.........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Stamp n Doodle has an anything goes challenge.
2.  Creative Craft Challenges2 wants us to use 3 of something on our card. I used 3 different designer papers, 3 butterflies, 3 shapes-rectangle, square and circle, and 3 different colors -poppy parade, peach parfait and soft suede.
3.  Challenges 4 Everybody has an anything goes challenge.
