H is for Hope

Today's card was made specifically to enter in the Just Add Ink 397--Just Add H challenge.  I have to admit it took my awhile to figure out which H to choose and then it struck me: my featured stamp set for March is "Hold on to Hope."  That is perfect for an H challenge.
I also decided to use this card to try a few new things.  This was the first time I had ever added a shim (piece of cardstock) to the BigShot while I was cutting out a thinlit to have it emboss the thinlit at the same time.  This was also the first time I had used a couple of the thinlits from the Cross of Hope framlits set.  I love the way it makes a detailed cut of the floral swag and not just the outline.  Finally, this was the first time I'd used my Stampin' Blends to color over an image I had stamped in a different color.  I think it turned out pretty well.  :)
I carried the floral swag into the inside of the card as well and even colored those flowers with the Stampin' Blends as well.  I love the decorative corner stamp in this set that just seems to make a blank card insert seem more formal.
