Hope



Hello Friends 

 I was playing about with my  Brusho's yesterday.
I had a teal an grey colour combo in mind for a card. 
I heat embossed these lovely flowers with white embossing powder
Then played about with some grey and sea green brusho's.
I added a wee bit of bling to finish with some rhinestones.
I really love the way my card turned out :)
The stamps I used are from the Unity KOM Beautiful One 
The sentiment is from the Everything resides in Hope kit. 

Thanks for stopping by :)
