Today I'll have 2 posts of projects for the Hope You Can Cling To challenges going on over at Split Coast Stampers. I hope you will be able to join along at some point this month. It is not only a great deal of fun, but you get to make cards that support such a phenomenal cause.
The challenge starting today is a Pinterest inspired one. Bridget is our hostess and she has shared several beautiful photos she found on Pinterest. you can take one or a combo of several and use them as inspiration for a card. I was actually surprised by the photo I used. it isn't the one I would have expected. but as soon as I saw this digital image from my friend, Deidre, and her Etsy shop, it was easy to see how the card was going to come together.
papers are from the Basic Grey Soleil collection, gorgeous flower is WOC, and everything else is just stash stuff. the moon is painted with shimmerz, and the sunset is painted over with my frost shimmer spray. I used the inside of a bubble envelope to create the bg on the card base.
All of you know just how much my labber dogs mean to me and what they have done to help ease my cancer journey. this image speaks volumes to that. I wouldn't have made it this far with what sanity I have left if it hadn't been for my dogs. :)
