BlinkieOhhh another card for this year’s Hope You Can Cling To Challenges. This card is for HYCCT1301B. The colors of courage – That’s right, it has been a colorful weekend… The challenge was to create a card that shares courage and strength with either the color red or orange or a mixture of  both. I used both. 🙂

This was a challenge for sure! Trying to come up with DP and an image that worked with the combo of orange and red was not easy, but I think these elements pulled it off! The use of a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches (#221) was the perfect way to showcase these elements.

The image I used is a From the Heart Stamps. It is called Painting Ladybug and the sentiment seemed perfect for this challenge – “Wishing you a colorful day”. Sometimes when time are tough and you need strength and courage the best way to find it is to look to beauty around you. I often see that nature including the colors of flowers, of rainbows, even of lady bugs…God’s majesty is incredible and seeing it let’s you know anything is possible. If anything is possible, courage and strength are easy to reach.
