Hope from The Paper Shelter

Good morning everyone - hope you are well today.

I've got an interview at my son's School for next Thursday.  I didn't think I'd get one because of a certain text message I accidently sent to the School (some of you read about this in previous post lol).  I really want this job as it fits into my life perfectly.  It means I won't have to pay for child care as I'll be home for my son.  Childcare is just way too expensive.

Anyhow I'm here today to share a card with you.....

This image came from The Paper Shelter.  It was a winner in a voting session they had at Christmas time.  I'd voted for something similar to this, although I'm glad this won as she is gorgeous.  Everyone who participated received the winning image.  She is called Hope, so thank you The Paper Shelter.

She is coloured in with ProMarkers.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid and I have used silver mirror card as the backing.  This was a nightmare to photograph.  The ribbon and gems are from the Works and the papers are NitWits from LOTV.
