Hope card for PPA85

Hello there,
Today I am going to share with you a card I have made using the new Strength & Hope stamp set from Stampin' Up! This set will be released next month and $2 from every set purchased will raise funds for Breast Cancer Research and what a lovely set it is.

I have made this card for the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. You can check out all of the fabulous entries right here. I really enjoyed working with this sketch and took some inspiration from the fabulous Ann Schach, using a bit more of a distressed look than I normally have been doing of late.

I have used the good old neutral tones as I find this works best for me when I am trying to achieve a soft distressed look. The embossed background stamp on the Early Espresso piece is from the SAB Bliss set, but the Butterfly, Hope and scroll wording are all from the S & H set. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that butterfly!

Stay tuned for the release of this fabulous stamp set, April 1st. Contact me to find out more about the great Fund Raising events that I am holding in April to raise money fro Breast Cancer Research, thanks to Stampin' Up!

            Cheers Dani xoxo
