I'm FINALLY getting started on the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges. Today's challenge is to feature 5 Words. I've been thinking about stamping though life has been busy and the follow-through has been lacking, but I'd seen this card http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...f&way=desc from last week's Queen for the Day peeps321 and I thought it would work well for this challenge. I also was throwing away some bank envelopes and saw the inner lining was grey so I snagged them up for my card! I started with a Basic Grey base and layered a piece of Grey patterns pack dp script over it after sponging the eddges. I layered my bank envelope triangle piece over another Basic Grey and distressed the edges. I added the hemp and pearls. I stamped my butterfly onto vellum paper and mounted it with vellum tape. I stamped the words in grey and punched them out sponging the edges and layering onto complementary colored circles. For my sentiment I had to resort to hand writing because I've misplaced my box of small alphabet stamps, using a black gel pen on another piece of envelope lining. I tore then sponged and blued them on! I feel like these words are a great reminder that even though we can't choose our circumstances, we can choose our response....words I'm telling myself these days!
