Hope You Can Cling To-Week #2

"Hang in There!" Challenge

This challenge was to have something hanging.  I used the Cricut Serenade Cartridge to cut the bird cage.  I stamped the flourish and the "beauty".  Made an oops!  Tried several fixes...nothing has been working...any suggestions?

Supplies Used: 
Stamps:  Fancy Pants-(don't know the name of the set)

"Things are looking up!" Challenge

For this challenge we are to make a card that uses things we see when we look up.  I immediately thought of this stamp with the child looking up.  I've had it for quite awhile.  Took me awhile to decide what I had that he could look up to.  I thought clouds...but I didn't want it to be a depressing card.  So, I thought clouds that are silver.  When I went to pull out my silver ink had melted.  LOL!  So, then I thought for a little while and I decided to heat emboss with silver powder.  I had the clouds done...I liked.  But I thought it needed more bling.  So, I added diamond stickles to the dots on the umbrella.  I then used some sparkly blue embossing powder for the puddle the image is standing in. 
Supplies Used:
Stamps:  MFT-Rain or Shine, Eureka Stamps-Boy Looking Up, Cornish Heritage Farms-Vintage text
Dies:  Spellbinders Nestabilities-Labels two
Embossing Powder-Mixtures from a LSS.

"Fight Like A Girl" Challenge
