Hope

Good afternoon!  Happy Tuesday!  How's your week going so far?  It has been raining here today so it was a good day to stay in and catch up on a few things.  Mostly, I've been working on upcoming DT projects, but I managed a little time to make a card "just because".   It fits with a couple of challenges I enjoy doing, so that's even better.
 
Here is my make:
 

My card base and mats are SU Blush Blossom and the patterned paper is frm the Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings 6.5x6.5 pad.  The beautiful image is Rosalee from Delicious Doodles.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I did something I don't think I've ever done before.  I added flowers over the flowers in the image after I'd colored it.  I was looking for some added dimension.  Not sure if I would do it again, but I do like how the roses stand out.  They are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A sheer double-loop bow and a few pearls finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:


Thanks for stopping by!  I have some DT comments to do and then I'll be around to visit for fun.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Delicious Doodles #84 (pink for breast cancer awareness)
Crafting From the Heart Challenge #15 (anything goes)
Craft Your Passion Challenge #210 (pretty pastels)

Have a great evening and see you soon!
