Hope and a Future

Hello Everyone!  Today I'm playing in the Stamping In Time challenge at ODBD.  This week we have a challenge hostess who is none other than the lovely Silke Ledlow who has given us a sketch challenge!  You can find all the details on the ODBD BLOG!!

I started with a base of Old Olive and layered with some peach coloured bazzill and some of this beautiful Thrift Shop DSP that was given to me by the sweet Lori Craig!  The green top and bottom panels are from Fly A Kite (more goodies from Lori) and for the middle panel I've used some May Arts Olive ribbon.  Next I stamped the verse from For the Graduate in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut it with Classic Large Oval Nestabilities (which is then popped up on foam tape).  The frame was made using Label 10 nestabilities and oval nestabilities and I've toned down the white with a little Antique Linen ink.  These beautiful dogwood flowers are from ODBD's set Grow in Grace and have been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (R20, R22, Y21, YR23, YG11, YG63, YG67) and then cut out and also popped up on foam tape.  To finish I coloured some white pearls with my R22 Copic Marker to match and added them to the top and bottom panels.

Have a look at all the beautiful projects waiting for you from the talented girls below...

This is beautiful Kathy. The DL size of card seems to be making a real comeback at the moment and you have used a great lo to enhance the shape.
I love the framing and the dogwoods. The colours are heartwarming and the verse is one of my all-time 'go-to's' if I'm feeling the need for encouragement!!
