I Stand for Hope

I survived moving!  And these cards are the first cards I made in my new craft room, grin.  I made the bottom card first and after several different attempts to "fix" it I decided to chop it up and try again.  So the top card is take two on the same idea, not sure if either really work, but I'm off to work and can't chop it apart again!


This card uses a bit of faux stitching so it works for Yvonne's Do More With Less Challenge.


I've combined a few challenges, first with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, the Cas-ual Fridays theme of buttons and twine, Wee Memories' "Get Sticky" challenge. 


Materials: Top Card: Waltzingmouse Big Blooms, SRM Courage sticker,  Hero Arts Cling borders, Hero Arts Classic Fabric, Core'dinations Sugar and Spice cardstock, vellum, Cuttlebug Just My Type stitching border, Twinery twine, Crafty Solutions button, Versafine black ink, Studio G pink ink, water color pencils, cream card stock, water color paper


Bottom Card: Waltzingmouse Big Blooms, SRM Courage sticker,  Hero Arts Cling borders, Twinery twine, Crafty Solutions button, Versafine black ink, Studio G pink ink, water color pencils, PTI kraft card stock, water color paper

Both cards are super cute! I had to do a double take when you said that the stitching on the first one was faux - really great!! Thanks for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays! Hope to see more of your beautiful work again!
