"Hang in there" card by ~ Misty Russell

Hi!  Today I have a card to share with you.  I haven't done too many cards because they actually don't come any easier to me than a layout or journal page.  It must have something to do with the smaller size that I struggle working with...

I used a 4x6 file folder from Canvas Corp as my base and started building on it from there.  

 I distressed all of my papers, including the file folder with the handy dandy distrezz it all then I added some of the negatives from the 3D Foam keys to the background for some added texture.

I lined the edge of the card with the lace ribbon, and then I ripped strips of the organza ribbons and added under some of the layers.  

Then like a lot of my projects, I added a coffee filter flower using the Rose Creations Die.  I like to use the coffee filters because I can cut several layers all at once.  Plus, I like dying them with coffee, mists, and pigment powders and then heat drying them.  The heat gun pulls all of the layers up the flowers end up looking nice and full!

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by!  Hope you are having a beautiful week!
