Hello! Here is my card for a couple of this weeks challenges. Ways to Use it - Round and Round - to use two or more circles in your project. I have used two Spellbinder circle dies and 10 mini circle brads. I made this for todays Hope You Can Cling Challenge given by Bridget. To be inspired by the poet - Emily Dickinson - Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all. Let your imagination fly with this, it can be anything that inspires you in this stanza about "hope" from Emily's poem, just let us know what it is in your card description - for example, your card could include birds , songs , music , or even something (anything!) "perching" . Or you could make a card without words ! It always leaves so much scope for the person sending the card as it can be used for any occasion!
I used this cute House Mouse image - Two part Harmony. Coloured image with stampin Up and Tombow markers. Masked image and sponged Barely Banana ink around image to give it a glow. Cut out image with circle spellbinder and matted with scalloped spellbinder. I've had a package of individual letter stamps for a long, long time and never used them. Today I made the word "Hope" stamping sentiment with Vintage Sepia Ink. I cased this beautiful card of Bridget's Hope Perches Thanks for the inspiration Bridget.
Thanks for looking,

Pat, my favorite House Mouse images by far are those where the darling mice are paired up with birds - I love, love, love this - so much so that it is now on my wish list! Beautiful coloring, sponging and stitching, it all comes together wonderfully! Thanks so much for playing along in today's challenge!
