Inkspirations Challenge #67 - Strength & Hope

Well, it certainly has been a while since I was here last!  Like everyone else, I have had a couple of those really busy weeks where you don't seem to manage to get everything done that you would like to, so the blogging & commenting have been sadly neglected.  Hopefully I will get to have a big catch up over the next few days & see all the wonderful creations everyone has been sharing.

Anyway, this week Keesh has a great sketch to get the creative juices flowing:-


I have chosen to use the beautiful new SU set, Strength & Hope, a set which has been designed to help raise funds for Breast Cancer research:-


The main panel has been masked, sponged & stamped repeatedly with the powerful words from the Strength & Hope set.  The Navy panel has been stamped with the Very Vintage Wheel.  Here's a close up:-


Please make sure you check out the awesome inspiration pieces from the Design Team.  We hope you can join us at Inkspirations this week:-

This is just beautiful Helen. The pink & navy is a stunning colour combo and I love how you masked the panel for the butterfly to sit over the circle. The whole card is very pretty and elegant :)
