Treasured Hope

Greetings everyone!  This post is for several challenges.  First, it is for Frilly and Funkie, where the challenge is to create a project using at least two repurposed items.  I began with a white card base and stamped various complimentary stamps from Crafty Individuals using Black StazOn ink to create a pleasing background.  A Cabinet Card was die cut using a repurposed liner from a candy box from this past Christmas and distressed with Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Dusty Concord Distress Inks.  The clip art is from a Miniature Book by Crafty Individuals.  A bit of black netting, which originally encased our Easter ham, was added to give the girl in the photo some added drama.  I added black photo corners to pop the colors of the image.  The sentiment by Stampa Rosa was stamped with White Versamagic Ink onto Black paper and framed with a gifted metal frame.  The chipboard flower was painted with Ranger Picket Fence Crackle Paint and colored with PanPastels.  Black Liquid Pearls create the flower center and offset the cabinet card.  Gold leaves and a seam binding bow complete the card.  This card is also for the PanPastels UK Challenge, which asks that we Add a Flower on our project and for the Simon Says Stamp and Show your Favorite Word - Hope! Thanks for stopping by.  I truly read and treasure every comment left.  Best wishes, Yvonne

Super composition on this card, Yvonne! Really gorgeous flourish stamping and I love the pale pink color palette you used. Your recycled items are so clever - the ham netting looks like the black millinery veil I sell in my shop - I got a terrific chuckle out of that! So happy to see your entry over at Frilly and Funkie this week. We really appreciate you joining in the fun with us for our re-purposing challenge!

Hugs,
Linda
