And last, but not least-Day 5 Impression Obsession Spring Release Hop



Good Morning!

Today will conclude the Impression Obsession Spring Release Hop.
This has been an awesome week and I am overwhelmed by all the wonderful comments on my blog

Today I have a very clean and simple card for you. It's funny because when I'm asked to define my style, I pretty much respond with " I have none". Well I suppose it's not that I don't have any style, but rather my style flucuates all the time. I just tend to create from my heart and am guided by looking at the stamp and going with the idea that strikes me at the time. 

For this card, I wanted to create a background that was bold, but still allowed for the sentiment to dominate. I love the sentiment. Finding power within ourselves is not easy, but like the characters in the Wizard of Oz who were looking for Courage, Intelligence and Compassion we really don't have to look far. The Butterfly image designed by Dina K.  is so striking. I can see myself using it over and over and I added the parsley stem for interest and a contrasting colour. 



I hope you've enjoyed the hop this week and I wish you the best of luck in the draw. Don't forget that TWO lucky people will win a $25.00 Gift Certificate. One will be drawn from the list of today's comments and one more for comments throughout the week!


Here's who is hopping today:
