Wee Wednesday - Hugs from Hopeful

 
Hello, Friends. Happy Wednesday! It’s time for another Wee Wednesday. Eulanda and I are showcasing our cards for this week and I hope you enjoy these darling stamps.
 
 
I was recently inspired by Norma Lee of "From My Craft Room" to create a Front Side Step card and it just so happens I had this lovely “Hopeful” stamp all colored up. I used some fun new papers from Doodlebug Design for her as the colors are just perfect and all of my cardstock is Bazzill.
 
 
She is framed with my new Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 die and I inked the outer edge with Spun Silk Distress Ink. I colored Hopeful with Copics and added a little gold Spica to her hair for shine and sparkle.
 
My Magnolia tag die has a “HUGS” sentiment from Hero Arts with a new decorative rhinestone from Queen & Co. I also used one for the middle of my ribbon bow made with Vintage Seam Binding from Wild Orchid Crafts. The pearl lace is from JoAnn’s Fabrics. I love browsing this store for unusual elements to use on my cards. All of my flowers are from Prima, layered with brads from my stash. My flourish die cut is from Marianne Designs. 
 
 
Here’s a close up of my image. She is certainly adorable and fits lots of occasions. 
 
 
I added a couple of flowers to the inside and a blank label for a personal message.
 
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
 
Make It Monday – Anything Goes
Through the Craftroom Door – Anything Goes
Love to Create - Punches and/or Dies

Absolutely gorgeous, Cathy. I have this sweet Wee image in digi, but haven't gotten around to colouring her yet. Love the vibrant colours you've chosen and your colouring is awesome as usual. Love the rectangle diecut--must be a new one. I haven't seen that one before--it's gorgeous. The ribbon with the pearls is to die for.
Hugs,
Norma
