A HOPE CARD...and tearing some paper

hello all,

 this card i made for a friend who is having a bit of a rough time:
i chose this torn paper technique, because this is how she feels right now: torn apart :(

5.5" x 3.5"
disclaimer: this card is heavy, very heavy.
it has been made with tons of love. :)
the card base is from a pack i bought from gartner studios a while back. these are the standard size of an A2 but i cut some of it off to fit my needs.

all the pretty patterned papers are from 7 dots studio (including the sentiment-hope). i have the 6x6 pad and i love the texture of it and that is perfect for the distressing techniques i am "in" lately :D.

i used a sakura gelly roll pen (clear star) to outline the word hope and give it a subtle shine. i also did some sewing machine stitching. 
i like the thick gutterman thread for this kind of stitching. i buy it at j's.

i had ordered these cute stamps from color hills. since i saw that font, i fell in love with it. i had made this project using some patterned paper from that same company and i was enchanted by the font...hehe. 
it reminds me of the all mixed up font from one of the cricut cartridges.
so i had to use them here
because behind all the mix up, there is indeed a story to tell. wink!

---old good times (when all was simpler) lol---.

thanks so much for continuing to visit me, :D
i appreciate you.
