Hope...

Floats?  Hope for tomorrow?  Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul?  Whatever hope is for you, this card is both hopeful and peaceful for me.  I had a ball making it.  I dirtied up all of my edges and sponged around the inside of my Spellbinder's die to create a warm space for my sentiment.  I finally remembered to use my crimper.  I have been so inspired by Marisa (Whiterockmama on Splitcoaststampers) and her use of her crimper.   I made this card last week Jodi's Dare To Get Dirty challenge.  Last week, I was a card making machine and loved every minute of it! 

Thanks for stopping by!
