Hang in There! HOPE You Can Cling To!

This card is for Hope You Can Cling To Challenge for Wanda Cullen's Hang In There Challenge taking place all month at SCS.   For Wanda's challenge we are to create a card that has something hanging. I chose to have my hearts dangle!


For my card I am using Verve's Always on My Mind, Believe, and Tag Time stamp sets. The inside hearts were die cut with Verve's Jotted Heart die.  I am using the VLV OCT2011 Week 2 Sketch.  I combined some Victoria Gardens designer papers.  I cut out a few of the words on one of the papers and added to the sentiment strip across the front along with a stamp word to create a fun sentiment strip.  I added some stitching, glitter card stock, gold memory thread, and gold pearls to finish my card.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Paper: Flourishes Classic Ivory, The Paper Company cream, Victoria Gardens dp, glitter cardstock
