Muse #40 and Hope You Can Cling To

Good morning, friends.  Today I have a card for this week's Muse #40, where our inspiration comes from the ever-fabulous Darnell.  Check out the card we get to work with this week:

Darnell's Card

I was inspired by the flower, the vertical orientation, and the sentiment.  I decided to make another card for the SCS Hope You Can Cling To challenge.  I started with a piece of Sweet Blush card stock, and stamped a random pattern using Memento Angel Pink and Frilly Flowers.  Can you believe that I have had that set for months and never inked it up until this card?  Then, I stamped another random pattern in Hibiscus Burst using a different stamp from that set.  Finally, a ribbon in Raspberry Fizz, and part of the sentiment in black.  

I used a different stamp from that same set to stamp a background in Hibiscus Burst ink on the same color paper, then used the In Bloom Impression Plate for texture.

I was inspired by the way Kim die cut her 'HOPE' sentiment on this card, so I did the same.  I stacked several die cut letters for height, and then put them all back into the card front, which is raised from the card base.

Supplies Used (PTI):
Stamps:  Frilly Flowers, Amuse Fight Like a Girl
Paper:  White, Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst
Ink:  Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Memento Angel Pink, Versafine Onyx Black
Dies:  Headline Alphabet, In Bloom IP

Thanks for Visiting
