Today our card focuses on Hope.

This card was inspired by Brandy Cox's Challenge from the 2024 Spring Creativate Retreat.  She called it "Paper Strip Background", and that is exactly what it is -- Paper Strips.  The background reminds me of a Quilting Technique, but for the challenge we just needed to add strips however we desired.  It didn't need to look like a "quilt".

I used a mixture of paper strips from the Unbounded Beauty Designer Series Paper (DSP), Basic White and one of my top 2 favorite new In-Colors, Summer Splash.  The Basic White and Summer Splash were embossed with the Distress Tile embossing folder before adhering everything to a layer of Basic White cardstock.

The sentiment die cut was made with one of "frames" from Unbounded Love dies.  The leaves that you see behind the flower is actually part of the die cut.  I love that.  It makes it so easy!

The flower is from the other bundle, Flowers of Beauty, which is included in the Unbounded Beauty Suite.  It is a two layer stamp which was stamped with Petunia Pop ink, also a new 24-26 In-Color.

For the inside of the card, I used the sentiment from Unbounded Love that coordinates with the "Hope" sentiment -- "IS BELIEVING IN A BRIGHTER TOMORROW."    Don't you love how the inside sentiment continues the message of the front sentiment?  I know I do!
