Courage and Strength

It is so exciting to be kicking off Hope You Can Cling To with THREE challenges today! Here's my card for Lori's challenge, to create a CAS (usually interpreted as Clean And Simple) card with a theme of Courage And Strength. An additional challenge is to use red or orange as focal colors.

I love poppies, and remembered that I hadn't yet inked up this gorgeous stamp from Stamping Bella called Lulu Loves Poppies. She's colored with Prismacolor Pencils.

Stamping Bella is one of this year's event sponsors! Love our sponsors - oh hey, did I mention there are prizes??

The sentiment I used is one I designed for Flourishes...

I had a little extra pearl paint left from another project, so I swirled a little of it around on the flowers for some extra sparkle.

Come join us!

 Thanks for stopping by!
