Hang in There

Sometimes life hands you things that are unexpected.  It can throw you for a loop. It's hard to remember that things happen for a reason.  But if you keep it in your mind and heart, that you are only given what you can handle, you'll realize that you are strong enough.  So just keep going.

That is the inspiration behind this card that I created.  I used a new digital kit by Etc. by Danyale and Sweet Digi Scraps called Kashmir for the papers and elements. It's a gorgeous kit filled with rich colors.

I made the card for this weeks Card Caravan at The Hybrid Chick. The theme is to "pop it up". All you have to do is have some dimension to your card. Easy, huh?  So stop by and join in!!

You can see that I popped up the bird on my card. I used double sided foam adhesive to do this.
